PA Day program at the Heritage House Museum

The Heritage House Museum is organizing a fun-filled program for this upcoming PA Day on January 31, 2020. Join us for some exciting winter themed activities, crafts, and games with an emphasis on nature. Children can expect to create snowman slime, a bird feeder and other projects. If the weather permits, we will head outside for an outdoor scavenger hunt and some games in the snow! Then after, warm up with some hot chocolate and watch a short film while working on other activities. 

This program runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, January 31 and is for children ages 6 – 12. The cost for this program is $20.00 per child. Children should dress for the weather and bring a packed lunch, while we provide an afternoon snack. This event requires pre-registration. To register contact the Heritage House Museum at 613-283-6311, or inbox us on Facebook. 

The Heritage House Museum has several upcoming events in February so stay tuned for more information regarding those.
