Unleash your inner child (or your actual child!) in this hands-on demonstration of 18th-century children's activities. Tom Hunt will introduce period-correct reproductions of toys and games and briefly discuss a child's place in the household and colonial society. Participants are encouraged to play with all toys and games – including whirly-gigs, ball & cup, game of goose, nine pins, bilbo catchers, Nine Men's Morris, and more. Cost: $5 + Eventbrite fees.
