Step away from your screens and step into history for a hands-on pioneer adventure!

The McHenry County Historical Society & Museum is offering free activity kits for third- through fifth-graders.

1. Pioneer Activity Kit – Children learn how to plan their pioneer adventure, pack a pioneer wagon, imagine and draw a new area to settle, grow a garden and even create pioneer toy! It includes an activity script and all materials needed for fun away from a laptop or video game.

2. Quilt Activity Kit – Learn about quilt history and how they are made. Practice making quilt block designs with various colors and shapes. Make your own paper quilt. It includes an activity script, handouts, construction paper and a glue stick.

 

To get your kit:
1. Email a request to Karolina Kowalczyk, MCHS Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, at karolina@mchenrycountyhistory.org .
2. Schedule a Pioneer Activity Kit pick-up time and date for a contactless pickup.
