Tiny Trowels

Each Tuesday from 10 to 11 am at the Kingston Archaeological Centre, we offer a great educational program for children 3 to 7 years old, entitled "Tiny Trowels". The program features puppet shows, sing-alongs, and crafts all focused on the theme of Native North and South American legends. A new story is featured each week, so repeat visitors are not only welcome, but encouraged! At the conclusion of each weekly program, visitors are welcome to stay and enjoy our interpretive center free of charge, or to re-create an archaeological "dig" with the kids in our large dig simulation sandbox.

The cost of participating in "Tiny Trowels" is $1 per child, and the last session will take place on November 27. For more information about this and other programs, please contact us.
