This month, History Explorers, we’re taking our meeting to seas! Climb aboard as we learn about life aboard a privateer ship, including what sailors ate, what your job might have been, and how sailors passed the time. For our Explorer challenge, bring along something from home that you would want to join you as you spent eight months at sea. And get ready to help us create our own, original, “tall tale” from the high seas.

History Explorers Club playdates are best enjoyed by ages 7-11 but fun for all kids.
