(Sweetwater County, Wyo. - December 4, 2020) As part of its ongoing outreach program, the Sweetwater County Historical Museum in Green River is offering special take home do-it-yourself Christmas tree ornament kits for children.
For Christmas seasons in the past, the Museum hosted on-site holiday “Make-and-Take” events where children came to the Museum and, aided by staff members, made their own vintage Christmas tree ornaments of several types; two of each kind - one for the Museum tree and one to take home for their family tree.
Due to Covid 19 concerns, Museum Public Engagement Coordinator Aidan Brady came up with an alternative for this year: pre-packaged Christmas ornament kits, complete with materials and instructions, that families can pick up at the Museum. At home, children can use the kits to make their ornaments; as before, two of each - one for the Museum tree, and one for the family tree at home.
The holiday ornament kits are designed for three different age groups: candy canes/ shepherd’s crooks for pre-schoolers, paper Russian nesting dolls, (called “Matryoshkas”) for kids who like to color, and wood-and-yarn Godseyes.
