Spurlock Museum Activities

Following the world history posts as well as foreign language , here's a couple of kid activities going on this summer. We've done the Stories Around The World a few times. Great hands on activities as well as a scavenger hunt through the museum about the particular topic. In our experience, Spurlock is very homeschool friendly and much appreciated.

Stories Around the World

Explore world cultures and artifacts through the folktales people tell and the craftwork they create. During these one-hour programs, held July 23rd and August 13th, children will hear two artifact-related stories in the Museum’s galleries and complete a craft in the Rowe Learning Center. Each program will be unique and present tales and crafts that are new to the Museum’s programs. For ages 5 through 9.
