Info

Tired of dark days and looking for something fun to do with your children or grandchildren during February vacation? Come to the Windsor Historical Society's Hands-On-History Learning Center and make your very own hand-dipped paraffin candle to take home.  Different colors for dipping make each candle unique.  The Hands-On-History Learning Center, where children can try on reproduction colonial clothing, try out a child-sized rope bed, or "milk" Flavia the cow, can be enjoyed at the same time. Also on view in the Learning Center is the exhibit Windsor Phoenix:  Remembering the 1979 Tornado. When you're finished candle-dipping and are looking for another fun family activity, color some colonial coloring book pages, explore calligraphy, or craft your own three-dimensional art with toothpicks and marshmallows. Scavenger hunts are also available for the Windsor history museum galleries - make sure to get your postcard after completing them! A parent or guardian must accompany their children.  Snow date for this program is 2/18. You may sign up online at www.windsorhistoricalsociety.org or just pay at the door.
