Living History Club (ages 12 – 17 or grades 6 – 12)
Join like-minded teens to learn about and experience what life was like for adolescents of the past. Each club meeting will feature a live conversation with someone who is involved in the living history field (such as roleplayers, reenactors, food historians, storytellers, merchants of reproduction goods) plus a fun historical craft or activity. Meetings will take place on Zoom every other week from 3:30-5:00pm, and will include projects like hearth cooking from home, assembling a “living history kit”, and creating your own roleplaying character. A perfect program for anyone who has ever wanted to try living in the past!
Club meetings will take place every other Wednesday from 4:00 – 5:30PM
Spring Session: February 3 – May 5, 2021
Club Membership Fee: $50.00/Museum Members: $40.00
Strawbery Banke American Girls Book Club (ages 6 and up)
Join us for some virtual time travel as we get to know historical fiction characters from the American Girl doll series. Each session will focus on a different book character whose time period is tied to one of the historic homes at Strawbery Banke Museum. The group will explore daily life as we learn to cook historical recipes, play games from long ago, investigate different periods of dress and make authentic crafts. The club will meet once every two weeks online and participants will have access to a webpage filled with other activities to try at home to be shared with the group during class. Read, imagine, be creative and stay connected to other history-loving kids this winter!
