Family Fun Day at the Millet Museum

Pipestone Flyer

 

 

This summer the Millet Museum is trying something new to entertain the young folk in the community, and anyone else looking for fun on a Saturday afternoon. Running every Saturday from June 23rd through to August 25th, there is a different theme that will include games, crafts and a light snack for all participants. If you are bringing children, one parent is required to stay for the duration of the program. 

On July 21st, the theme is "Farm Frenzy", and museum staff will teach kids about this industry and how it is an important way of life in Alberta. There will be farm animal themed games and everyone will get involved in making farm animal crafts.

July 28th is all about "Wild, Wacky Water". Participants will learn about Alberta's extensive river and lake systems, and if the weather cooperates, everyone will head outdoors to cool down with some wet n' wild outdoor games! 

August 4th brings "Flower Power" to the museum. In honour of Communities In Bloom's 18th year, everyone will learn about flowers that grow in Alberta, and will even get to plant their own flower to take home!

August 11th is "Music Madness"! Participants will learn about the history of music, as well as creating their own musical instrument out of simple household items. This theme coincides with Millet's "Concert In The Country", a two day gospel music concert that runs August 11&12.

August 18th will showcase "Millet, Then and Now". A look back through the ages at what the early days of Millet was like. You will experience the differences between life as you know it today, and Millet's early pioneers.

August 25th is the final Saturday in this program, and it culminates with Millet's Harvest Fair. The Town celebrates with a pancake breakfast, parade and trade show, with the museum hosting harvest themed crafts and games for everyone.

So if you find your family at loose ends on a Saturday this summer, and looking for something fun and different to do, check out the Millet Museum, they are waiting to entertain!

For more information on any of these programs, give the friendly staff at the Millet Museum a call at 780-387-5558.
