Patriotic Crafts

First celebrated in 1777 with a state dinner and parade, Independence Day was declared a federal holiday in 1870. We’ve been finding new ways to celebrate ever since. Make a period-appropriate handkerchief doll and enjoy some simple red, white & blue fun!

Whirligigs

Learn how to make the original fidget spinner! This deceptively simple toy is tons of fun. Often made from a spare button and a piece of string, it can also be called a “buzzsaw” because of its characteristic buzzing or humming sound, rather like an angry bee. Amuse yourself and annoy your friends!

Giant Bubbles

Experience the fun of playing with old-fashioned bubble wands. In the 1890s, bubble wands were made out of tree branches and scraps of muslin or yarn, and the old soapy laundry wash-water. Come blow extra-large bubbles with our rustic wands!
