Watch a 20-minute play written by snarky British loyalists in 1776 to mock the American defeat in the first battle of the War for Independence.

Was the Revolution a scam? Were the Founding Fathers idiots? The anonymous author of The Battle of Brooklyn, A Farce in Two Acts thought so!

Commemorate the anniversary of the battle with this funny piece of 244-year-old propaganda – lovingly abridged, introduced, and directed by local historian Dylan Yeats.

Join OSH Director of Education Maggie Weber to learn how to transform old T-shirts into a colorful rug using your Hula Hoop as a loom!

This quick and fun project for Kids 8+ requires: 1 Hula Hoop, several old T-shirts, scissors, and a roll of strong tape.

Adults will need to help kids cut the T-shirts into strips before class starts.

This is a virtual 2 week program. Session 1 we will start weaving by creating the round warp around the Hoop, and learn how to attach the T-shirt strips. Session 2 will be all about finishing the rug and learning how to tie it off. For the fullest experience, we recommend signing up for both weeks, but it is not required.
