Family Fun & Games Day: “My Home”


PARSIPPANY — What makes a home? Find out with fun activities exploring what home means for people, animals, and more!

The Stickley Museum hosts its third annual Family Fun & Games program on Saturday, May 9, from 12:00 Noon to 4:00 p.m. The day’s activities are built around the theme “My Home.”

animalexperiences2Children of all ages will be invited to explore and learn about homes of all kinds, including the Stickley family’s home, the Log House at Craftsman Farms. Families are invited to visit the Education Room for the chance to get up close & personal with live animals from Animal Experiences, an outreach program developed by the Happy Tales Animal Sanctuary in Pine Bush, NY. Children will have the opportunity to pet and ask questions about the animals and their homes in nature in a fun and safe environment.

Stick around for Story Time in the Log House, brought to you by the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library.

While focused on family fun, this program will also encourage children to consider concepts that Gustav Stickley held dear, like the value of nature and the meaning of home. The program will include scavenger hunts, both indoors and out, that encourage a fun exploration of the Log House and its beautiful natural environment, craft activities, and games. And while you’re here, treat your family to snow cones from Kona Ice.

Admission is FREE to Members at the Dual/Family level and above. All others $10.00 for Children for the first two children; $5.00 for each additional Child; $5.00 for Adult. No reservations necessary.
