Making History

3 items left

By Wendy Freshman and Kristin Jansson

Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2014

The past comes alive through craft projects that celebrate Minnesota’s history and people. Imagine soldiers on the Civil War battlefield as you assemble a “housewife” sewing kit like those made by wives and mothers. Re-create the drama of a Midwestern tornado when you build an automaton that actually spins, and celebrate the invention of water skiing with a boat and skier that really glide.

You can trace the patterns to cut out right from the book or download them online. Step-by-step instructions carefully guide you through each project that is as educational as it is fun. A perfect gift for a child in your life, or perhaps a parent, teacher or caregiver looking for new and fun activities to do with kids. —Erin Altemus
