Participants will get to enjoy making yarn dolls; doing chores like beating a rug, snapping peas and scrubbing clothes on a wash board; gardening and working with plants; and both making, and sampling, lemonade.

Both the morning session (to be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.) and the afternoon session (1:30 to 3:30 p.m.) will be held at the Mount Prospect Historical Society’s museum campus, 101 S. Maple St., Mount Prospect.

Reservations are required and enrollment will be limited.  Parents will be responsible for both drop-off and pick-up.  There is a $10 fee to cover the cost of supplies. To download the registration form, click here.
