OTHER CHILDREN'S PROGRAMMING:

The Crafty Historian


Crafty Historian events are held on the third Saturday of most months from 10:30 to 12:30. Reservations are required by Thursday prior to the event so that we will have enough supplies for everyone.Each event includes an educational, art-focused activity that stimulates creativity and interest in traditional crafts. Children 9 and older are welcome to attend without a parent, and younger are welcome with an adult. There is a minimal charge for each program based on the type of craft for the day. These events are wonderful opportunities for both parents/grandparents and children to experience history in a fun and interactive way.
