Winter Recess Dreamcatcher & Tea Party

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 

Make A Dreamcatcher ~ 1:00 PM

Dreamcatchers were originally made by the children of Native American tribes, such as the Cherokee.  These Native Americans of the Great Plains believed the air was filled with both good and bad dreams.  Learn the legend of how dreamcatchers trapped all unpleasant dreams.  Dreamcatchers were hung in the tipi or lodge and on a baby’s cradle board.  Create your very own to hang in a special place.

 

Victorian Tea Party ~ 2:30 PM

This fun and informative program includes role-playing while teaching social skills, self-esteem and confidence. Children learn dining manners, such as how to properly hold and cut with a knife and fork. Apple juice will be substituted for the hot tea. Participants also practice table setting and introductions. All make their own nametag and place card. Bring a stuffed friend or favorite doll, or come join new friends! Dress up if you wish!

Fee: $12.00 per child for 1 program or $20.00 for both programs

Programs include a guided tour of the Birthplace

 

Estimated run time for each program is 1 ½ hours.
