Children’s Back-To-School Program

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Make A Cornhusk Figure ~ 12:30 PM

Wherever corn was grown as a crop, children in both Native American and Colonial American families used husks to fashion dolls. With a knowledgeable interpreter, fashion your own cornhusk figure—either boy or girl. Learn the legend of the cornhusk figure—why did it not have a face?

Victorian Tea Party ~ 2:30 PM

Join the party! This fun and informative program teaches social skills, self-esteem and confidence. Children learn dining manners and the etiquette that makes afternoon tea a special occasion. A delicious nut-free baked item will be served with the tea. Bring a friend, or your favorite doll, or come join new friends at the party!  Dress up if you wish!

Click to buy tickets:  Per child, $12 for 1 program or $20 for both programs

Estimated run time for each program is 1 ½ hours.
