Hands-on History: Counting Sheep

March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hands-on History is a free activity series every first and third Saturday of every month. Open to the public!

In Rufus King’s time, sheep were mainly used for their wool and not yet for their meat. King had 26 sheep on the property, and we have original wool carders, a loom, and a spinning wheel that were all used to make clothing and blankets. For this HOH craft, we are putting the wool back ON the sheep!

Join us in using recycled packing peanuts to create your own cheery sheep puppet. It may come in handy when you are having trouble sleeping at night, especially due to Daylight Savings (March 10th)!

Hands-on History is a FREE family program series held each first and third Saturday of the month at King Manor from 1-4pm.
