Children invited to enjoy some ‘unplugged fun’ during Stay and Play Thursdays at the Doak House Museum in July

Posted on 15 June 2017 by

Making home-made stick horses is just one activity of the Stay and Play Thursdays at the Doak House Museum in July.

The Doak House Museum will featured some 19th century “unplugged fun” for children during its Stay and Play Thursday events during the month of July.

Children ages 6 to 12 are invited to take a break from electronic devices and enjoy activities that were fun for their counterparts in the 1800s a few hours of the day each Thursday of the month in July at the museum on the Tusculum College campus. Activities are planned for 9 a.m. to noon on each of the Thursdays.

Each Thursday will have a different theme connected to life in the 19th century. Activities will begin on July 6 with art projects. Toys and games will be the focus on July 13. On July 20, participants will enjoy food-themed projects. Concluding July’s program will be a day of nature activities on the 27th.

The cost for the program is $10 per child for each day of activities. The fee covers all materials used in activities and a mid-morning snack.

Space is limited. Please contact Dollie Boyd, director of museums at Tusculum, for more information or to make a reservation at 423-636-8554 or
