New for After School!

Playthings from the Past: Indoor

Recommended grades K-6

From Jacob’s Ladders to thaumatropes, learn about some favorite playthings from the past.  Students will try their hand at parlor games as well as make a toy to take home.

Playthings from the Past: Outdoor

Recommended grades K-6

Students will play some outside games that they may be familiar with, and others that might be new to them! They will use their motor skills to roll a hoop and beat their opponent in Egg and Spoon Race, and their math skills in a game of Bowl Toss. While these games are great to play outside, they can also be played in a gymnasium if there is bad weather!
