By the hour, the day, or weekend your public, guests, students, or clients will enjoy a family style interactive activity. As they arrive toys and games are explained and taught so they can then play with them for as long as they like.
All age groups can play ninepins, walk on stilts, play shinny and even try writing in a journal with a feather quill pen! There are enough games to occupy dozens at a time.
What fun to let loose and dance in costume... or not! No experience necessary and all ages are welcome. Small groups or large can participate in this simple and fun activity with just a couple minutes of instruction. Traditional steps, traditional music (you might recognize a few of the tunes...) and some costumes add to the fun of dancing like our forefathers.
This young baker is making a mulberry apple pie to be baked in the bake kettle. Your family can participate in preparing various foodstuffs from the 18th century over an open fire. How do you cook a trout over a fire with just a board or a stick? Can you make popcorn in a kettle? What will you mix in your bannock corn cakes and how will they taste cooked on the griddle? And what will we put in the venison stew?
When you're done cooking you can wash your dishes with a homemade potscrubber and take home a bunch of herbs!
Brass kettles full of washing water infused with lavender, big bars of homemade soap, and rough scrub brushes are just the beginning of this hot summer day workshop. Baskets of laundry wait while you try on a period outfit and take some pictures! (If its really hot, you just might get splashed!)
Dunk, scrub, rinse, and wring until all the water drips out! Then take your washing over to the clothes line and hang it out to dry. Perhaps the white linens would whiten better laid out in the green grass! Mom and Dad, you can dress up, too!
