Inkwells and Imagination

The pen is mightier than the sword! But, women haven’t always been able to wield that power, so history tells us much less of their story. Make your mark on history with the power of words, an inkwell and, your imagination!

Lovely Limericks
Make an amusing 19th century toy and write a lovely limerick to go with it!

Secret Gardens & Little Princesses
Explore the stories created by Frances Hodgsen Burnett – A Secret Garden and A Little Princess with a Secret Garden Scavenger Hunt, then write your own story, and fashion a perfect 19th century doll to enhance the tale!

Don’t be Shy, be a Nellie Bly!
Nellie Bly was a record-breaking journalist, adventurer, investor and writer before women had the right to vote. Embrace the Nellie Bly spirit and write newspaper article to be published in the Travellers Rest Tribune!

Dear Friend
Take quill pen in hand and practice your penmanship with a letter to a friend or family member. Be sure to tell them about your favorite day or most daring adventure!

This program fulfills the requirements for the Scribe Badge.
