Free First Saturday: Play in the Past

Saturday, August 4, 2018, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Imagine it was August in the year 1700 – what would a child be doing to pass the time? At Free First Saturday at CHS you’ll experience what it means to “play like a Puritan.” Kids and their families will get the chance to play with colonial toys and games like ninepins, hoops, and game of graces, compete against friends in colonial “chore races,” and make their own whirligig toy to take home.

This drop-in program is free and open to the public, and great for children ages 4 and up. For more information, please contact Corinne Swanson at (860) 236-5621 x222 or email corinne_swanson@chs.org.
