The tanking economy means many kids are staying home this summer.
What to do if they’re not in camp, on the Cape or at the Caymans?
How about discovering their own town? Or another continent?
The Westport Historical Society has added 2 new Explorers programs to its August calendar. Both are geared for children ages 7-11.
“Mysteries” (August 3-7) includes local scavenger hunts, code writing and breaking, forensic science, logic puzzles, letterboxing, drama, cooking with “mystery” recipes and making ice cream.
“Time Traveling to Africa” (August 10-14) features games, making crafts, map making and reading, walking tours, outdoor games, cooking, a special drumming class, a field trip and more.
