Three Island Crossing State Park offering Saturday morning crafts

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

Children and their parents enjoyed making Talking Sticks, last Saturday morning at Three Island Crossing State Park.

The park is offering crafts for kids of all ages on most Saturday mornings during the summer. Participants will learn about and make items based on traditional Native American and pioneer crafts. Each session lasts about one hour.

A matinee, featuring historical films, is shown every Saturday at 2 p.m.

All activities are held in the Oregon Trail History and Education Center and are free. Everyone is invited to join in the fun.

The $4 per vehicle entry free to the Park will be collected at the kioska at the main entrance. An entry fee will be waived for people who have a 2008 Idaho State Park season pass, or to those who chose to walk or ride their bikes into the park.

A craft session will not be held on June 7, but will resume on June 14 when participants will learn about and make Spirit Stones. June 21 learn about and make Cave Drawings, and make a traditional Corn Husk doll on June 28.

This month's movies are: June 7 - West to Oregon; June 21 - The Gold Rush; June 21 - The Story of the Oregon Trail; June 28 - a rerun of West to Oregon.
