Fairlawn Mansion and Museum is gearing up for the holiday season, and they are looking for some kids to help with some decorations.

Fairlawn is offering a Children's Home Activity Packet that includes materials to make a paper chain, a Fairlawn Mansion ornament, and some historical information about the Children's Home. Kids will also get a chance to participate in a coloring contest to win 2 tickets to the Twinkling Evenings event.

The decorations will be collected and displayed in the Children's Home Exhibit. Fairlawn says, they plan "to decorate the Children's Home Exhibit the way children who resided here would have during the holidays."

The kits are $5 each and are available here or can be purchased at the Fairlawn gift shop Sunday - Friday Noon to 4 PM, and Saturday from 10 AM to - 4 PM. The kits will be available until November 13th.

All the decorations must be returned to Fairlawn by November 18th. Each kit will have a number so the kids will be able to locate their creations in the exhibit.
