Front Lawn Fun! Games from the Past
August 1, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Wednesday, repeating until August 22, 2018
How did kids play in the past? Toys like Jacks, Jacob’s Ladders, and YoYos have been found around the world for thousands of years. You will get the chance to play with colonial-era replicas of these games, as well as take part in slinky races down our front steps, giant checkers on the lawn, and even decorate your own WWI fighter paper airplane. Grab a friend and play The Snake Game, where you can try your luck in getting George Washington back home to Mount Vernon.
