Yesteryear Christmas

Thursday, December 7, 2023. 9:30-11:00am


Ages: 5-7

Cost: $8 per learner

Join other local home learners for this special session of the Yesteryear Christmas program.

Journey back through time and experience Christmas a hundred years ago. Learners will explore toys and games of yesteryear, learn different winter traditions and celebrations, and listen to a Christmas story. Due to ongoing construction, learners will see how a typical mining family lived and celebrated the season with a virtual Miner’s Cottage tour, supported by interactive artifacts. Learners will make a seasonal craft item to take home and will also enjoy festive goodies to eat. 

This is a 90-minute, in-person program that takes place at Nanaimo Museum.
