October is Texas Archeology Month! Join us on October 8 at 3:00 to 4:00 pm as we appreciate our history with FREE activities for kids including including:

  • Mini Dig: How do archeologists find what objects ancient humans left behind? In this hands-on activity, participants will investigate a mini “archaeological site” in a shoebox to carefully excavate the site and record artifacts they find.
  • Flint Sorting: Participants will identify different flint tools used by prehistoric people. What was each type of flint used for?
  • Maxey House Artifact Matching Game: Match photos of actual Maxey House archeology artifacts!
  • Pinch Pots: This is an archeology activity classic! Go home with your very own pot made at the Maxey House.
