Decking the halls: Kids get creative at third annual Christmas for Kids event at Wyman Museum in Craig
The Wyman Museum’s trove of antiques took a backseat to decidedly younger curiosities Saturday. Amid twinkling lights and the strains of holy carols, the museum was filled with children. “They came in gobs and bunches,” museum employee Benna Haughey said. And yet despite the overwhelming number of children, the museum was surprisingly quiet. Nearly every child was immersed in creating Christmas ornaments. Office manager Nicky Boulger said that’s what Christmas for Kids is all about. “I think this is a good thing for the kids,” she said. “They get together with their parents, and they get to make something with them. “Hopefully it gets them a little more into the Christmas spirit.”
