MAKE A DREAM CATCHER - 1:00 PM.  Dream catchers were originally made by the children of Native American tribes, such as the Cherokee.  To Native Americans, dreams were messages sent by sacred spirits.  Learn the legend of how dream catchers caught all your bad dreams.  Create your very own to hang in a special place.

VICTORIAN TEA PARTY - 2:30 PM.  Join the party!  This fun and informative program includes role-playing while teaching social skills, self-esteem and confidence.  Children learn dining manners, such as how to properly hold and cut with a knife and fork.  Apple juice will be substituted for the hot tea. Participants also practice table setting and introductions.  All make their own name tag and place card.  Bring a friend, or your favorite doll, or come join new friends at the party!  Dress up if you wish!

Programs include a guided tour of the Walt Whitman Birthplace.

Estimated run time for each program is 1 1/2 hours.

Pre-registration and pre-payment are required, as enrollment is limited.
