Family Fun & Games Day: "My Home"

May 10, 2014 

12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

What makes a home? Find out with fun activities exploring what home means for people, animals, and more!

The Stickley Museum hosts its second annual Family Fun & Games program on Saturday, May 10, from 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. The day’s activities are built around the theme “My Home” and will include bilingual components. Children of all ages will be invited to explore and learn about homes of all kinds, including the Stickley family’s home, the Log House at Craftsman Farms. 

This Spring we’re pleased to once again partner with PBS Kids Club THIRTEEN, a family membership at PBS THIRTEEN. A visit from everyone’s favorite cartoon monkey, Curious George, will be a highlight of the day for children and adults alike. George’s curiosity encourages children to explore the world around them.

Fotolia 35732318 LAn entertaining and educational live animal programAnimal Experiences, will offer a special opportunity to consider the homes of many kinds of animals, and the natural world which is home to us all! Families are invited to reserve a spot at one of three 30-minute programs where children can laugh and learn with the animals.


The North Cottage will once again be the site of a story time reading of the classic children’s book The Best Nest by P.D. Eastman in both English and Spanish. 

SMCF Family Day Sept 2012 064While focused on family fun, this program will also encourage children to consider concepts that Gustav Stickley held dear, like the value of nature and the meaning of home.

Fall Family Day Sept 2012 020

We offer a variety of year round programs for children and families, including special children's tours of the Stickley Museum, seasonal Family Days and Holiday Tours, a Craftsman Farms tradition.

In planning our Educational Programs for Children and Families, we use Gustav Stickley's own words to guide us. In an October 1913 article about the origin and growth of the Craftsman Movement in his magazine, The Craftsman, Stickley wrote:

 

 


The Craftsman Movement...stands for the right Fall Family Day Sept 2012 072of the children to health and happiness through an education that will develop hands as well as heads; an education that will give them that love and enthusiasm for useful work which is every child’s rightful heritage….”

Our programs are designed to engage children in multi-sensory, hands-on learning and timeless fun. Like Stickley, our programs for children and families place a high priority on valuing nature, family life, and working with your hands. Families are invited to get involved:  take a children's tour with a flashlight and magnifying glass, practice embroidery, paint a pumpkin , square dance, or run a three-legged-rade at a Family Day, get your hands dirty, play in the grass, learn about history, and more importantly, make history together.
