In partnership with DelVal’s Kids U! program, the Friends of Washington Crossing Park will host a virtual three-part virtual series for kids.

The series is set for April 8, May 13, and June 10 from 4 to 4:45 PM. Cost for one child is $17.76 per session, or $45 for all three sessions.

Children (ages 7-9) will learn:

The herbs used during the colonial era to make tea and preserve food
Tea taxes and the Boston Tea Party
How to make a paper teapot
How colonial gardens and kitchens were arranged
How colonists observed and identified certain types of plants
A virtual tour of Washington Crossing Historic Park’s two kitchen gardens, located at the Hibbs House and Thompson-Neely Farmstead, will be offered during the June 10 webinar.

Material kits will be mailed to each child participant prior to sessions. Common household materials will be needed, and adult supervision is required.

Instructors will be park historical horticulturalist Anna Davis-Agostini, and Katherine Becnel, volunteer coordinator for the Friends of Washington Crossing Park.
