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!
Programs include a guided tour of Walt Whitman Birthplace
Estimated run time for each program is 1 ½ hours.
