“It’s time to celebrate Christmas at the California Trail Center,” said Visitor Guide Jordan Thomas. “From making crafts and ornaments to meeting Santa and Mrs. Claus, there is something for everyone at Pioneer Christmas for Kids.”
- Meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. Tell Santa what you want for Christmas. Take a picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
- Design Christmas cards. The best Christmas cards are made from scratch.
- Sew a clothespin doll. Sew your own clothespin doll just like the pioneers and eight-year-old Patty Reed of the Donner Party.
- Make a paper snowflake. Visit the snowflake station and create your colorful paper snowflake.
- Create reindeer ornaments. Make a candy cane reindeer ornament for your Christmas tree or to give as a gift.
