Family Workshop at County Museum

Families can experience how local Indians lived, worked, and played at special workshops at the San Bernardino County Museum. “Indian Toys and Tools: Part I” is scheduled for Saturday, July 29 from 9 a.m. to noon. The cost of $5 for one person or $10 for a whole family includes museum admission. Pre-registration is required by Wednesday, July 26.

“During the workshop, we will make some toys and tools that will help us understand how local Indians survived and thrived in the area for thousands of years,” said Museum Educator Nancy Kirkwood. “Part 2 of the workshop, on September 23, has an entirely different set of activities, so families can enroll in one or both.”

Activities during “Indian Toys and Tools: Part 1” will include weaving a reed doll to take home, decorating and practicing with a rabbit stick, making walnut dice and learning how to play games with them, learning how to use a pump drill, and creating a shell rattle.

Registration forms are available on the museum’s web site and at the museum’s front desk.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. Parking is free. For more information, visit
