Family Fun, “Work and Play in the 1880s”
Apple Valley– Work and play like Californians did in the 1880s! On Saturday, April 23, families can make history during the Family Fun Day, “1880s at Work and Play,” at the Victor Valley Museum in Apple Valley from 11am to 3pm. This program is included with paid museum admission.
Visitors will be able to beat a rug, clean clothes with a tub and washboard, dip a candle, play old-time games, make corn husk dolls, and more. Activities are suitable for children ages 4 and older.
“Our Family Fun Days make the subject come alive for the whole family,” said Curator of Education Jolene Redvale. “It’s a taste of what life was like in the past, and helps us appreciate the lifestyle we have today. Plus, it’s a whole lot of fun!”
