Little House Pioneers

Instructor(s): Caren Pita
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Have you ever imagined what it was like to live long ago? Maybe you’re a fan of the Little House on the Prairie books or TV show. Maybe you’ve even wondered what kids in the future will think was interesting about your life as a kid today. We’ll engage in some of the activities Laura Ingalls Wilder describes: churning butter, making a button lamp, sewing, and enjoying old-fashioned sweets. If the weather allows, we’ll even pull taffy. We’ll also create a visual time capsule full of our own descriptions and pictures of the way children live today, as a historical record for the day when this is “long ago.”
