Hampton History Museum is back with another great line-up of FREE Family Fun for their Second Saturday Family Day! 

Some of the planned activities include:

  • Quilting 
  • Airplane model building
  • Victory Garden planting
  • Poster making, games, and other fun activities, children will discover how citizens at home have aided service members during wartime.

Children will have the opportunity strike a pose for photos recreating iconic posters from WWII, such as the famous “We Can Do It! image, more commonly known as “Rosie the Riveter.” In support of military on deployment, young artists can create their own inspirational posters.

Members of the Peninsula Piecemakers Quilt Guild will present and talk about their quilt projects for service members, and they will have signature squares for visitors to write messages on to be sewn into the quilts. 

To learn the importance of conservation and how discarded materials were collected during wartime through scrap metal drives, home front practice of rationing will be explored in a game with recipes from WWII.
