If you are looking for a way to create unforgettable memories with your children or grandchildren, Hands-On History Days are a great opportunity (October 17th, 24th and 31). Hands-on History Days is a series of unique learning experiences specifically designed for adults to do with children.
For instance, learn a historic craft, like Scherenschnitte. Or experience old-fashioned farm chores, like fence building or stuffing a mattress. You can learn how clothing was made with materials grown on the farm, like wool and linen. And you can even experience “going to school” in a one-room schoolhouse to see what schools 150 years ago were teaching.
October 17, 24, 31. 10am to 3pm. (Children must be accompanied by an adult.)
Price: $11/person (adults and children) – includes materials
*Free admission for PA Heritage members not valid for Hands-On History Days
