About this event

A fun weekly gathering at The Farmers’ Museum designed for families with children. Each week, a variety of new games, craft activities, and lessons will be introduced, with elementary academic content best suited for children ages 4 – 10. The program ends at approximately 11:30am. Parental involvement encouraged. Build lasting friendships and rediscover the simple pleasures of traditional New York lifeways through the summer months at The Farmers’ Museum.\n\nAppropriate dress is recommended for the weather as each program will include a guided walk through the Museum grounds. We encourage parents to RSVP by registering via Eventbrite or by contacting Michelle Bosma, Manager of Youth Programs (email or telephone 607-547-1414) with the number of children planning to attend, to help us plan the number of craft supplies needed. This program is provided free of cost to museum members and retired career military. Non-members will be charged for regular museum admission.\n\nFamily Farm Fun! Schedule 2023\n\n(Subject to change pending severe weather)\n\nJuly 11th - The Noble Farmer. Using an inquiry lesson, we will learn that many of America’s founding fathers and mothers were also farmers. To celebrate the noble farmer and our countryside, we will decorate banners, perform a marching drill, and parade with streamers and drums to Bump Tavern. There, the democratic process will be enacted as we vote for our favorite ice cream, ending with a complimentary carousel ride.\n\nJuly 18th – A Sense of Place. Families will be introduced to a series of maps on a progressively smaller scale, helping us to understand our place in the world. We will then engage in our own mapmaking project, traveling the grounds of the Historic Village and Farm, completing our colorful maps in the Main Barn. To test our map-making and navigation skills, we will then use maps of The Farmers’ Museum to discover a treasure marked by an “x” before ending with a carousel ride.\n\nJuly
