Pioneer Woman Museum Launches Pioneer Kids Summer Activities for Third to Sixth Graders

PONCA CITY, Okla. -- This summer on Tuesday afternoons in June and July, the Pioneer Woman Museum will host Pioneer Kids. Local third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders will play games, create crafts and explore some of the other fun things pioneer kids did long ago.

"We must remain connected to our heritage. Our kids today need to experience the same activities the children of our pioneering mothers and fathers did so that they can continue to tell the stories and share the history long after we've all faded into memories. Plus they're fun!" said Pioneer Woman Museum Director Robbin Davis. Activities will rotate each week, but common themes include crafts and games in the spirit of the pioneers who settled Oklahoma.

Children participating in the activities must be accompanied by an adult. Accompanying adults can participate in the activities or they can simply explore the museum. Programming will take place 1 – 4 p.m. and is $3 for each child. Kids can come for 30 minutes or stay the whole time. Large groups must preregister. For more information contact the Pioneer Woman Museum at 580-765-6108 or piown@okhistory.org.
