At the St. Albert Grain Elevator Park children will experience what it was like to be a child many years ago. Each child will make an old-fashioned toy to take home, and while the program will be a lot of fun, it will teach children about how much work kids had to do on the farm in the “old days.” Chores in this program may include setting a proper table, helping with the laundry, gardening, lacing shoes and boots or cleaning up the train station or grain elevator agent’s office.
