Workshops for Kids

The Museum offers a series of workshops for kids during February school vacation week. On each day, there will be two 3-hour workshops for kids ages 7-12.

Monday, February 18, 9 a.m. to noon Election Day Cake

Bake a traditional Hartford Election Day Cake. Election Day was
considered an important holiday in early New England. The cake was baked to celebrate it and on President’s Day too!

Monday, February 18, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Say Cheese

Kids won’t believe how easy it is to make their own cheese! We’ll make a lemon-herb cheese spread served with homemade crackers.

Tuesday, February 19, 9 a.m. to noon Hearth Cooking

A child’s favorite. Young cooks will use colonial recipes and cook over an open hearth the old-fashioned way! (space fills up quickly)

Tuesday, February 19, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  Hand puppets

Children have been making hand puppets since the beginning of time! What’s especially fun about hand puppets is that each one can be unique and individual. Put on a puppet show when done!
