Girls entering second, third and fourth grades will have fun discovering what it was like to live on the Illinois prairie during the late 1800s when the Mount Prospect Historical Society’s Living History Committee presents a pair of two-hour sessions entitled “Life as a Prairie Girl.” 

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.

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.
