Hands-on activities throughout the afternoon include tin can lantern and kids’ quilting crafts, while supplies last. Children also can dress in historic costume, just like the naturalists.

Other activities include old-fashioned farm chores, pioneer games and historic home tours. Visitors also will be challenged to discover pioneer superstitions through a passport-type game. All activities take place at the Bronnenberg Home, which is inside the park. The event is free, though normal park entrance fees of $7 per in-state vehicle and $9 per out-of-state vehicle apply.
