Don’t miss our LHF Kids’ Club Activity Spots each month May-October! These are hands‐on activities for LHF Kids Club members at Living History Farms sites. Download a LHF Kids Club passport below and bring it with you. You’ll get a stamp for joining in on the activity! At the end of the season in October, kids with a completed passport can exchange their passports for a special prize in the Marketplace Museum Store! Activities take place on scheduled days from 10am to Noon and 1pm to 3pm.

May 12: Visit the Greteman General Store for a Garden shopping scavenger hunt! Farmers often purchased tools and seeds for their gardens at a local General Store. Drop in and see if you can find all the items on the shopping list for a garden plot!

June 16: Join the wedding preparations and celebrations at the 1850 Pioneer Farm. Wedding ceremonies take place at 11am and 1:30pm. Before the wedding, play games and meet the bride and groom. After the ceremony, taste a pioneer wedding cake recipe and join in a dance!

Can’t make it on one of the scheduled activity days? Stop in to the MarketPlace Museum Store anytime you visit Living History Farms during that month to get a stamp in your passport.
