The Watkins Museum of History is excited to announce the return of a popular event series: Watkins Summer Games.

As part of our effort to provide free indoor fun for families during the summer, the museum will welcome families with kids age 10 and under to participate in games, crafts, and dances from 10 a.m. to noon every Wednesday in June and July.

The theme for this year’s games is the different states of the USA, with each game day devoted to a particular state and featuring lessons on state dances as well as state-centered games and crafts.

From North Carolina to California, kids will travel across the USA without leaving the Watkins.

Additionally, participants will be able to enter a drawing for a $50 gift card to The Toy Store. The winner will be drawn and notified after Summer Games conclude on July 31.

The Watkins Museum of History is at 1047 Massachusetts St. Learn more on its website, watkinsmuseum.org.
