Just in time for St.
On Saturday, April 1, the Society will hold a workshop for kids on – of course – the history and fun of April Fools’ Day, which is celebrated by sending people on fruitless errands, giving inedible treats, and other pranks.
Signs are everywhere.
Humble ticking stripe fabric, that sturdy material which was originally made to encase mattresses and pillows made of straw or feathers, will be utilized to make potholders in this workshop for children.
Hand pies are small circles of thick pie dough, filled and folded over, baked, then ready to be pocketed and eaten on the run.
More information to come regarding transportation, lunch and cost.
From the moment they arrive, twelve lucky kids will be up to their elbows experiencing life in historic Wilton in this engaging and fun Colonial Boot Camp! The summer program will be held at the Wilton Historical Society from June 26 – June 30, 9:30 – 12:30 daily.
