Description: Unplug and spend the afternoon crafting and creating! The Litchfield Historical Society’s Crafternoons will explore a new theme in history with hands-on crafts and games that encourage students to look away from the screen and tap into their own imagination. To learn more about the month’s topic, we suggest reading one of the books listed.

SEPTEMBER - Back to School: Celebrate the new school year with an afternoon of crafts to get you ready for the classroom while discovering how school today is different from school in early America.
