There are certain songs that can instantly bring back a specific memory.Originally Posted by femme fatale;3135204;
I remember in 9th grade listenint to Rod Stewart's Tonight's the Night sitting in a friends bedroom and talking about what it would be like to "do it".
I heard that song on the radio the other day and I was instantly transported back 32 years to that friends bedroom.
The Eagles Heartache tonight reminds me of a party I went to in 12th grade.
There are a lot more, but those are the only ones I can remember right now.
I like Lois' idea of the husband's entertaining us with the time warp.
Ellen, I can't believe you took your mom. How fun though.
OK, BIG CHANGE IN SUBJECT.
I need a kids craft for ages 3rd grade through 5th grade. It has to be a "historical" craft from Colonial to Civil War period.
We tried making punched tin lanterns out of tin cans and it was a disaster. We have rejected soap and candle making as it's too dangerous and we don't have ready access to a stove to heat the stuff up anyway.
I thought about corn husk dolls, but I'm sure the boys will not want to do that.
HELP, the only other thing we can think of is possibly making paper and quill pens. But the paper making will be messy and it will have to dry and I'm not sure if we will have enough time for it to dry before they go home.
I have found tons of websites, but they all reccomend soap and candle making and cornhusk dolls.
These Colonial and Civil war kids had to have been making something besides soap and candles.
We have some great games of the period to play, but we are lacking crafts.
I need something that will take about 1 hour or less. Not be extremely messy and fairly cheap to do.
Thanks so much!
