Summer Program at the Atwood Museum!

Scroll down for sign up, registration, and payment details.

Join us on Monday mornings – choose which class(es) you like!
(The same 3-class program is offered in July and August) 

  • Toy Time Travel: What did children do for fun 200 years ago?  What were their playthings and pastimes?  Entertainment was simple, yet creative and rich with imagination.  Join us for a morning where the past comes to life through the play of children.  We’ll learn, we’ll play and we’ll even craft a few toys to take home.
  • Hats through Time: Why do people wear hats?  From functional to fashionable, each hat tells a unique story about the people who wore them during the times in which they lived.  You will learn about different hat styles and craft your own headwear.  Be sure to wear your favorite hat to this fun morning!
  • Young Colonial Gardeners: Join us as we explore the Atwood garden, which replicates a garden of the 18th century.  Identify plants, touch and feel, and work on planting a mini garden of plants that you can take and grow at home.
