Kids Crafts at the Museum #1 – Powder Horn Designs
The Luzerne County Historical Society will present a series of kids’ craft programs over the course of this summer at the LCHS Museum, 69 Rear South Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre, PA. On three Thursdays, July 11, July 25 and August 8, at 2:00 pm, children will learn a local history lesson and create a craft that connects to the museum’s exhibitions and collections. Each child will go home with a keepsake of their time at the museum.
The first program in the series explores the art of powder horn decoration and will take place on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 2:00 pm. Join LCHS Director of Operations and Programs Mark Riccetti, Jr. and Museum Manager Allyson Earl on a tour through the Museum’s “Battle of Wyoming at 240” exhibition. The children will learn about how Revolutionary War era soldiers customized their powder horns with unique designs. They then will create a design of their own inspired by the horns in the Museum’s collection.
