The Sam Rayburn House State Historic Site, 890 West State Highway 56 in Bonham, will have educational and fun activities of a bygone era on Tuesday and Wednesday from 1–3 p.m.

The programming will feature two different educational tours of the home and hands-on activities both days. On Tuesday, the theme is “Sam Rayburn, Statesman” and includes a patriotic kite for kids to create. The next day, the theme is “Sam Rayburn, Farmer” with pretend calf roping practice and a make and take farm mosaic craft. Both indoor and outdoor activities are planned so participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather.

The event is for children 3-10 years of age. All children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver or parent. Space is limited and there is a $3 activity fee each day to help cover the cost of supplies.

Please contact the Sam Rayburn House State Historic Site at 903-583-5558 to make reservations in advance.
