Spring Break Kids Program: Party like it’s 1799

April 14th, 2015 until April 16th, 2015

10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Spend your April Vacation with us from April 14-16 and experience what kids did for fun more than 200 years ago. Our Education Director, Elizabeth Devoll, has used her creativity to come up with fun-filled activities that will inspire, enrich and educate every kid!

Learn about the button factory in Saugatuck while using antique buttons to decorate wooden bowls. Another important local industry 200 years ago was a tin factory and we’ll construct elaborate tin mobiles and hand-stitch a version of an American flag.

Celebrate spring with cooking and planting. Learn about the many apple farms in Westport and bake apple tarts. Decorate vintage flower pots using a mosaic technique and paint local historic scenes with watercolors.

A behind-the-scenes tour of the historic Wheeler house will be included along with insider legends to excite the imagination. Yoga with Sue and role playing drama games with Jen Devine will round out the activities.

Snacks will be provided; bring a bag lunch. Registration is required,  please call: 203-222-1424, Members $150, Non Members $175, Sibling discounts. Ages 5 – 11, 10 am -2pm, for information, email:  edevoll@westporthistory.org
