Making My Family Special for Tiger CubsDress Up in Wheelwright 4

Travel back to the 18th-century and discover how life in the past was similar and different to children’s lives today.  Explore how meals were baked on an open hearth and practice some 18th-century kitchen chores, try out a rope bed with different mattresses, dress up in Colonial clothing and make an old fashioned toy to take home.  Before or after the workshop, examine the daily lives of families living in the Puddle Dock neighborhood of Strawbery Banke Museum over three centuries with a booklet written especially for Tiger Cubs.  Groups are encouraged to extend their day and visit other houses, meet craftspeople, explore the historic gardens and spend time in the Family Discovery Center.

Tiger Cubs can download the Making My Family Special  booklet to help them complete the “Go See It” requirement.
