FREE Easter Make and Take Craft Activity
Get in the Easter holiday mood by making a special paper bonnet and creating other decorations bound to add color to any celebration at the Little White School Museum on Saturday and Sunday, April 12-13. The museum is located at Jackson and Polk streets, just a few blocks from Oswego’s historic downtown business district. From 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. both days, visitors of all ages, from 5 to 95, will enjoy the opportunity to make their own handmade Easter decorations and fashions to take home to enjoy. Visitors are invited to stop by any time between 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. either day to participate. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No registration required, although groups are urged to call ahead to make sure the museum has sufficient materials on hand. And while visiting the museum, don’t miss their seasonal “Easter Bonnets on Parade” exhibition featuring men’s and women’s fashionable hats from the 19th and 20th centuries. Dozens of colorful examples from two centuries worth of headgear have been added to exhibits throughout the museum. Look carefully to find and identify all of them! “Easter Bonnets on Parade” is available now through the end of April. Regular museum hours are Sunday through Wednesday, and Friday, noon to 4 p.m. and Thursday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum's archives and research area is open Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings. While museum admission is free, donations are always gratefully accepted. The Little White School Museum is a cooperative project of the Oswegoland Heritage Association and the Oswegoland Park District.
