'Blast from the Past' program teaches history

At Yorkton WDM branch

It was the start of the ‘Blast from the Past’ program today at the Yorkton branch of the Western Development Museum.

Scheduled to run through Wednesday and Thursday, the program provides participating youth, ages eight-to-12, with fun activities and hands-on experiences designed to provide a glimpse into pioneer life on the Canadian Prairies.

The half dozen youth enrolled spent a busy day Tuesday, including making rope, taking a wagon wide in and around the WDM grounds, playing ‘I Spy’ as a scavenger hunt through the museum, making perogies and hand carding wool.

There are a variety of activities planned for the next two days as well, all with a connection to the past.
