The Watkins Museum will host a free drop-in summer activity every Wednesday in June and July. From 11 AM to noon, attendees can learn and play a different historic game or pastime. Modern favorites and old-fashioned games alike will be featured, including marbles, jacks, Annie Over, Grace Hoops, Hide and Seek, and a special bubble day. The game of the week will be posted on the Watkins’ Facebook page and website.

Children are invited to bring a sense of adventure and fun as we play our way through history. The games are geared towards children 5 and up, but younger children are encouraged to join in the fun and explore the Victorian playhouse on the third floor.
