Ponca City Now - June 22, 2016 2:28 pm

This Saturday, June 25, is Pioneer Arts and Crafts day at the Pioneer Woman Museum.

Hands-on activities will include candle making, weaving, tie dye and other hands-on craft activities.

“This is, by far, my favorite theme of our summer activities,” said Museum Director Robbin Davis.

Each Saturday in June and July, the museum offers new activities as part of Pioneer Family Fun Days.

“We are having such a great time this summer with the kids and adults who have been coming out and enjoying their time at the museum,” Davis said.

This Saturday’s activities are make-and-take, where each participant can try their hand at the craft and then take home what they make.

“There is so much joy on the kids’ faces when they make something of their own and get to take it with them,” Davis said.

Families of up to six people can join in on the fun for only $5. The activities are designed so that participants can come and go from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Each week’s activities are preplanned and more information can be found at Most activities are appropriate for ages six and up, but everyone is welcome.
