Create your own fabric wrapped wreath using all kinds of fabric. Decorate it and hang it on your door, or give to Mom for Mother’s Day!

Tuesday, April 12, 9 a.m. to noon: Hearth Cooking

A child’s favorite. Young cooks will use colonial period recipes and cook over an open hearth the old-fashioned way! (space fills up quickly)

Tuesday, April 12, 1 to 4 p.m.: Roasted Cheese and Apples

Children will roast cheese and toast bread the way the Colonists did. They will also learn how to preserve food such as drying apples for use all year long.

Wednesday, April 13, 9 a.m. to noon: Bath Bombs and Bath Salts

Make your own bath bomb that is fragrant and colorful. To make your bath even more luxurious make a jar of bath salts. Both make awesome Mother’s Day Gifts

Ribbon braiding is fun and easy. Once your ribbon is braided, attach it to a hair band to wear, or wear as a headband! Next make a butterfly collage using fabric, buttons, and felt. Copy a butterfly from the Butterfly Alphabet Book or copy a real live butterfly from our butterfly garden!
