Kids experience the age-old tradition of hearing stories by the fire as well as making and decorating Christmas ornaments.
Let your kids experience the age-old tradition of hearing stories while gathered in a cozy circle around the fire. Every Saturday a storyteller will weave a different Pueblo tale, after which our own education team will guide the little ones in an art activity that relates to the story. Our friends at the Pueblo Harvest Cafe will offer hot chocolate for sale throughout.
Free with museum admission.
