Kids Craft Day: Corn Husk Doll

In the Colonial past, the Mabees had to be self-sufficient. What few toys the Mabee children had, had to be made by hand with easily available materials. For children across centuries and around the world, a simple strand of corn husks could be fashioned into a precious doll. In this workshop, we’ll teach the history and the practice of making your very own corn husk doll. Pre-registration is required. Tickets are $10 per person, members are free. Limited to 25 people.
