Learn a new skill, and have fun while doing it! WCHS is celebrating fall by
making an iconic pioneer toy: the corn husk doll!

Pioneer children didn't have access to many regular toys, so they had to be
creative when it came to playtime! One of the lasting favorites was made with
corn husks, which were around farms in large quantities.

Participants will receive all of the supplies and instruction they need to
make and dress their own pioneer corn husk doll!

This is an open-house workshop: the craft will not take the whole 3 hours,
and participants are welcome to come any time within the 3 hour window.
