Life on the Ranch: Holiday Traditions

Celebrate the warmth of the holiday season with crafts, games, music, and merriment from the early 20th century. We’ll busy your hands with holiday wreath-making, invite you to join in an old-fashioned sing-along around the player piano, and provide you with materials to make Victorian and Mexican holiday crafts. Come play games like dreidel, take a draft-horse carriage ride, decorate the tree, and create ornaments to bring home to your own tree.
