Colonial Craft Day

The fifth grade students at HMS had a chance to experience what life was like during colonial times by participating in Colonial Craft Day. The students dressed in colonial clothing, and spent the day learning how to make candles and wooden toys, knit, create spice hangers, and make butter.

Our fifth graders found all of these activities fascinating, and learned a lot by having the chance to go back in time for the day. Thanks to the fifth grade teachers for creating this opportunity for their students. Special thanks to Nini Emmons for her integral role in making this event possible, and to all of our parent volunteers for donating their time and expertise!
