Each Children's Heritage Day event consists of a series of hands-on workshops, during which participants will see demonstrations of traditional skills and learn basic practices and tool use to create their own unique souvenirs to take home. The day also includes old-timey games, storytelling, and/or other activities as time allows.

The activities, for ages 8-18, for all 2014 dates (see website for dates) include blacksmithing, rope-making, animal-tracking, candle-dipping, folk art painting and woodworking. Projects to make and take home include decorative hook, hand-made rope, candles, folk art piece, hiking or walking stick.

Group size is limited to 12 participants; Cost: $40/person; $5 sibling discount. Call Michelle Bourlet at 706-490-3977. An application can be downloaded at foxfire.org.
