Exploring Life as a Prairie Girl I and II: Thursday, July 18
Girls going into second through fifth grades will have the chance to turn back the clock during July when the Mount Prospect Historical Society offers a variety of unique classes, not found elsewhere.
On Thursday, July 18, two programs for girls will be held. ?Life as a Prairie Girl I,? for girls entering second through fourth grade, will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Participants will explore life in the late 19th century. The prairie girls will make dolls, try old-fashioned chores and games, learn about gardening and make lemonade from scratch.
That afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., "Life as a Prairie Girl II" will also be offered. This session is intended for girls who have already completed Prairie Girl I. These prairie girls will try their hands at sewing, make a paper doll chain, whip up a no-bake summer treat and plant a flower in a tin can. The registration deadline for classes is Thursday, July 11.
Space is limited for all programs. The cost is $25 for one program or $20 per program if registering for multiple programs. To register, visit the Mount Prospect Historical Society website atwww.mtphist.org to pay through PayPal or call 847/392-9006.
