Try your hand at woodworking and create a mini version of a wanigan (a traditional canoe tripping equipment box with its own unique carrying system). Explore its origins and variations as you hunt through the museum to find the pieces you need to build your wanigan.

Finish up the afternoon with baking a traditional wanigan treat!
