**Making corn husk dolls
**Creating Chinese dragons or lanterns
**Creating pottery or making figurines
In addition, attendees will enjoy a display focusing on Apache families, and the Mexican American Heritage Museum will present a family activity and a display on Mexican American history.
Family Funday will be held on Saturday, Nov. 25, from 10 am-1 pm outside Fort Lowell Museum, 2900 N. Craycroft. No RSVP is necessary! The event is free, but donations are appreciated.
Fort Lowell was a military supply post active from 1873 to 1891.Buildings at the Fort Lowell Museum are currently closed while Presidio Museum staff prepare them for opening at a future date. The museum is located in an 1880s reproduction adobe officers’ quarters. Events will be held outside the museum until it is reopened December 2. Once it opens, visitors will learn about the purpose and history of the fort and about its soldiers and their families. Displays will also cover the Apache of the region as well as the pre-history of the area seen at the nearby Hardy site.
