FORT SCOTT, Kansas: “The family that plays together stays together” is a variation on an old saying about families. If you are looking for a fun and educational activity for your family, then come join us at Fort Scott National Historic Site for Family Day, a new event that is taking place on Saturday, July 21, 2018!
On that day, families can engage in a number of activities that will immerse them in 1840s military life at Fort Scott. In the morning, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., three different stations will be ongoing. At a cooking demonstration, visitors will be instructed in food preparation and cooking methods. In a historic garden display, you can work in the garden and help with the harvest. In a third station, visitors will be drilled in the use of 1840s firearms using wooden “dummy guns”.
Afternoon activities from 12:30 p.m.-2:00 p.m. will include fun arts and crafts for the family at one station and historic, interactive games and activities for adults and kids at a second station.
