Real-time demonstrations give participants a feel for how easy it is to create items with herbs for everyday use. Recipes and instructions included. Special bonus is a discussion of how to package items as gifts this winter.
Learn to play and create several simple and fun games used by adults and children of several Native American Tribal groups of the Eastern Woodland region. This interactive class geared to kids (age 7 to 12) and adults, will explore the history and purpose of games in American Indian society while understanding the rules for various games. Participants will discuss the rules, try out the games and even create one to take home. Full instructions and rules for all games will be provided for a total of seven (7) different games. Instructions will be included in a take-home handout.
Some new, some ancient, all the games we will play have an international origin. Countries like Africa, the Netherlands and Peru are all featured in this program. Participants aged 10 to 15 and adults will learn to create each game and then practice the rules of play. Handouts with instructions will be included. All the games in this program can be played with a piece of paper and a fist full of pennies.
