An obvious idea...
Here's an obvious idea that I've never seen done at another battlefield. The visitor center at Monocacy National Battlefield has an area for kids to do fun things: color, play with trains (Monocacy junction was an important rail center), dress up like civil war soldiers and civilians, read cool books about history and nature, color coloring sheets about the battle and the Civil War...heck, they can even learn about honey bees. This morning I wrote on the blackboard "Draw your favorite animal"...boy, did they take me up on that one.
The main project that I've been assigned is to rehab this area and to come up with appropriate graphics for the walls (you can see some of my work here). It's an exiting challenge, and I'm diving into it.
I'll keep you posted.
