Brownie Fun and Games in Colonial Times

Scouts will learn about the types of toys, games and activities that entertained early American children and have the opportunity to play with reproductions of the very same games and toys. Scouts will learn about the many different types of marble games dreamed up over the centuries and the unique vocabulary that “mibsters” (marble-players!) use. The event culminates in a marathon of marble playing with scouts devising their own original marble game. Each participant will make their own set of clay marbles with a burlap carry bag to take home. This program fulfills requirements for the Fair Play Brownie badge.
