Colonial Crafts and Games on Acorn Pies

I posted fall and winter activities on Acorn Pies today, and have a special section for Colonial Crafts and Games, since many American primary school children study the pilgrims every fall.  Look in the right-hand column for tutorials about:

How to Make Bayberry Wax
Making a "Tin" Lantern
Making a Paper "Tin" Lantern
How to Make an Oil Lamp
Quill Pen
Make Butter
How to Play Nine Man Morris
How to Play Troll My Dame
Weaving with Children

Have fun experiencing a taste of Colonial days with your children, students, or scouts.

I love the ideas you have for children...can't wait to try the snow lantern in January and the game Troll My Dame. I am so envious of you getting to live in Switzerland...how wonderful!!
