The Luzerne County Historical Society will present a series of kids’ craft programs over the course of the summer at the LCHS Museum, 69 Rear South Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA. On three Thursdays, July 11, July 25 and August 8, at 2:00 pm, children will learn a local history lesson and create a craft that connects to the museum’s exhibitions and collections. Each child will go home with a keepsake of their time at the museum.

The second Kids’ Craft program in the series is Fun with Fossils and will take place on Thursday, July 25, 2019, at 2:00 pm. Join LCHS Director of Operations and Programs Mark Riccetti, Jr. and Museum Manager Allyson Earl on a visit to the petrified stump on the LCHS lawn. After learning about fossilization and how it occurs, the children will then create their own pressed “fossils” to take home as an example of what they learned.

Reservations are preferred for this program. Tickets are FREE for children of LCHS members and $5 per child for nonmember children. Price includes the craft activity and a beverage. No lunch will be served. Tickets may be purchased by calling 570-823-6244 ext. 3 or by emailing reservations@luzernehistory.org.
