Crafts for kids
The Wilton Historical Society is offering two new programs to keep children busy on summer Saturdays and farmers’ market days.
Six Summer Saturdays will offer a variety of craft projects, selected by museum educator Allison Reznik, for children ages 4 to 10. They may try their hands at tin-punching, weaving, spoke shaving (barn pegs), clothes pin dolls, quill writing and more. The dates are June 20, 27; July 11, 18, 25; and Aug. 1 from 11 to noon. The program is free for members, $10 per child for non-members to a maximum of $25 per family.
Market Makers is every Wednesday, from 3 to 4, at the Wilton Farmers’ Market on the grounds of the historical society at 224 Danbury Road. Children may participate in a different, free craft project or activity every week from herb grinding, spinning and carding, and vegetable stamping to cross stitching.
