FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. –  Interactive family Christmas kits will be available for pick up from the North Peace Museum beginning this Friday.

These free kits include a Christmas poem with local connections.

“It’s a poem that was written by a local poet Burness MacGyver about Edith Collison who lived in Rose Prairie. But back when she was a child growing up with her brother in the United States, she and her brother got into their Christmas stash a little early,” Sjoblom said.

The kits also contain a Christmas scavenger hunt with clues that parents can set up, a Christmas board game, and a craft.

“All of this stuff we’ve made up other than the poem, which comes from our collection,” Sjoblom said.

Kits are appropriate for families with children ages two and up.

There will be 100 kits available, 1 kit per family. A member of each family must be present at the time of pick up.

Masks are required to be worn at the time of pick up as per public health guidelines.

This is the second round of free interactive kits the museum has made available to residents. Earlier this year they offered 300 free dinosaur kits to families.

Both kits were made possible thanks to a donation from North River Midstream.
