Participants will make ornaments, Christmas trees, and stockings. Cost per program is $6 for museum members and $11 for non-members. Light refreshments will be served.

Three nights of festive events will feature good company and a variety of holiday crafts and projects.

Youth will create a pine cone tree and make Christmas cards to take home. During the final Festive Friday on December 15, students will discover the story of stockings, make their own stocking, and take home a stocking stuffer gift.
