An education specialist will guide children through a tour of the Presidio Museum designed just for them. The program includes a demonstration of where cochineal (red-dye that was an important trade commodity for early settlers) comes from and a story. The Hour will also include a daily life hands-on activity, which could include: pot gardening, laundry the "old fashioned way,” making clay bead bracelets, making wool bracelets, tortilla making, or colonial-period games. Children will then enjoy a coloring activity to encourage participants to express what they have just learned. The program is included in the admission fees of $5 for adults, $1 children ages 6-14, and free for children under 5, but participants should register ahead of time at

Presidio Museum, 196 N. Court Ave., Tucson
