Storytime at the Museums: Dress-Up at the Homestead

Monday, July 31, 2017
10:30 am
Jackson Homestead and Museum, 527 Washington Street, Newton

Most people today get their clothing pre-made from a store, but historically most clothing was made at home, and worn until it fell apart. We will read Caldecott Award winning book Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback. Afterwards, interact with historic garments from our collection and design your own clothing with a coloring activity. For children ages 18 months to 6 years and their caregivers. Includes free entrance to the museum after the program.

Admission: Free
