Home Sweet Home 

Saturday, September 30 at 10AM

Everyone needs a place to call home, but what that home looks like all depends on the environment in which it’s located.  Children will be exposed to different building materials as they explore homes throughout the world.  This class will conclude with a visit to the National Museum of Natural History to explore an actual structure.

Do you have a special blanket or quilt at home?  It could be special because of the colors, the design or the person that gave it to you. We will see an example of a star quilt from the National Museum of the American Indian, learn about these special quilts, and have the opportunity to play with fabric and create our own quilt designs.
