Children on the frontier had to make their own entertainment. Homemade toys like a buzzsaw or button whirligig were popular because they were easy to make and only used common household items. Join us at our January San Jacinto Family Day program to make your own buzzsaw toy. We'll provide the materials; all you need is your creativity.

When: Saturday, January 7, 2023; drop in between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Where: San Jacinto Museum
