Kids Invited to Aiken County Historical Museum

The Aiken County Historical Museum in Aiken, S.C. hosted their annual “Decorating Gingerbread Cookies’ Party” for children on Friday, Nov. 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. as a gift to the children of the community. Families were invited to bring their children to the museum for this free festive party where children got to display their artistic and creative side by creating boy and girl gingerbread cookies. Each child was allowed to make two gingerbread cookies using the supplies provided by the Board of the Friends of the Aiken County Historical Museum. Supplies included frosting, m & m’s, sprinkles, glitter, and other items, which were all edible. According to Del Hickey, a Board member, “this event is just one of their community outreach efforts and a way to get people to the museum.” “They raise money through dues to provide programs and financial support for the museum,” Hickey said. In addition to making gingerbread cookies, refreshments were also provided and for the children who didn’t eat their cookies right away, carryout bags were provided.

The Aiken County Historical Museum also hosts other events as well and on Saturday, Dec. 7, the Aiken County Historical Museum will host the Nutcracker Tea.
