April 15th, 2014 until April 17th, 2014
Spring break is coming, and green activities will be bustin’ out all over at the Westport Historical Society. Starting Tuesday, April 15, kids ages 5 to 11 can take part in a three-day workshop where they will learn how to be caretakers of the environment as well as how to repurpose recyclables that are normally thrown away.
“We’ve had a horrible winter, and this will be a new beginning,” said the Society’s Education Director, Elizabeth DeVoll. The workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday, April 15-17, and will be a good way to get kids primed for Earth Day.
Some of the many hands on projects include mask making of endangered animals using detergent bottles and colorful milk carton caps. You won’t believe how beautiful bouquets of flowers can be when crafted out of recycled bottle caps.
Head outdoors to paint spring landscapes, plant flower bulbs and experience Westport’s farming history.
Children should bring a bag lunch, and registration is required. The cost is $125 for members, $150 for non-members, with $25 off for siblings. For more information and to register call (203) 222-1424. Save the date for our exciting two week summer program, August 4-7 and 11-14.
