Museum Mashup: Tomte Friend
Monday, December 5, 2022
You have probably seen lots of American Christmas gnomes during December. Learn about the Swedish tomte and make a tomte friend for the holidays. In Sweden, if you’re good to your tomte, they may just help you out with chores around the farm. Be sure to leave them a treat of porridge and butter on Christmas Eve!
Tomte Friend is the Gale Center’s December Museum Mashup activity. Every month the Gale Center provides a free activity for families to pick up at the museum or download online. Activities are perfect for Pre-K and K-3 learners.
Museum Mashup at the Gale Center is funded in part by a grant from Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts, & Parks. Thank you!
