Roscoe Village offers spring children’s programs

| April 16, 2014

COSHOCTON – Roscoe Village will offer two Spring Children’s Programs in April. The first program is the Roscoe Kanal Kids where children will have the opportunity to see how youngsters on the canal lived and worked.  They’ll experience what it was like to do house boat chores, be a hoggee or a deck hand. Kids will also enjoy playing canal era games, hear the stories of the canal and they may even learn some fun canal songs.  Participants will have an opportunity to try on canal era costumes. This program is at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 24, at the Caldersburg Pearl, Roscoe Village’s stationary canal boat replica. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. in the one-room school house. Join us for this exciting event and become a Roscoe Kanal Kid and enjoy a special treat and fun things to take home. This is a free event; however, donations to defer costs of the program are appreciated. Reservations are accepted through Monday, April 21.

The second event, Peter Rabbit’s Favorite Snacks, takes place from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 27, at the exhibit hall. Find out what others see at the first signs of spring. Small groups will go on a scavenger hunt searching for those items that tell us spring has arrived. Enjoy some time learning about bunnies and what they eat; hint: it isn’t just carrots. Have some quality time cuddling a soft bunny. Listen to the tale of Peter Rabbit and the mischief he gets into in Mr. McGregor’s garden. This story was written by Beatrix Potter as a picture letter in 1893. Complete your visit by making up your own salad in a jar. You will be able to select your salad fixin’s, seal it in a jar, and take it home to eat with your dinner. Cost of the event is $5. Please call to reserve your spot by Wednesday, April 23 — this event is limited to 15 children.
