Your kids can become colonial kids with a little help from the activities in this book. In Sailing and Settling, children build a sailing ship; tie knots, hitches and bends; make a compass, and more. They learn how to dress the part, then try their hands at some household projects like making rag rugs. Dinnertime! has them churning, baking corn bread, making trenchers and all sorts of yummy treats from gingersnaps to baked apples. Everyday life introduces homemade "remedies," candle dipping, weaving, knitting, making an almanac and learning manners. In Arts and Crafts they can learn quilting, do decoupage, and make pinch pots. They can make their own quill pens and ink, construct a horn book, and stitch a sampler as they learn about colonial schooling. And, finally, Fun and Games will have them making toys like tops, corn husk dolls, and poppets and playing ninepins, marbles, and hide the thimble. Although short on text, these hands-on activities would help dress up your Early American studies.
