Kids Hour

Every Wednesday at the Rossland Museum between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. it’s Kids Hour

This year the Rossland Historical Museum is trying something new. Every Wednesday between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. it’s Kids Hour, a program featuring funny games, interesting science and other great ways for kids to learn and play. The first two occasions were a great success with multiple participants in attendance.

On the first day, the kids made two volcanoes, played games and looked at fluorescent rocks. The pink and blue lava of the volcanoes was greatly appreciated, as it was perfect for the kids to stick their hands in. The main attraction of the second Kids Hour was the homemade ice cream. The kids shook the ingredients for ice cream in bags filled with ice and salt until they were frozen. A bag ripped, blowing ice all over, and turned into a milkshake that was more cherished than a bag that turned into proper ice cream. That day they also took a look into what life was like in Rossland in the past.

As the museum guides themselves are young and full of energy, they manage to get the kids excited during quizzes and games. During one game, the kids were divided into two teams and tasked at identifying old artifacts. Some of the kids were very knowledgeable on the subject and guessed almost every item correctly!

The participant fee is $2 for kids between 7 and 10 years. As a bonus, participants receive a recipe card and learn how to execute different experiments. Some of the upcoming themes are railways, ski history, mining and community. The last Kids Hour will be on August 20, so be sure to check it out before then.
