Herbs'n'Spice and All Children Nice

An interactive S.T.E.A.M.-oriented investigation of some not so common herbs/spices and their varied, sometimes strange uses.

Children will be introduced to both the present scientific facts and the ‘old-timey’ oddities of these flavorful seasonings. This presentation includes a visit with the beloved Strega Nona, one of the first "Herbal Magicians," an imaginary winter field trip to brew Wildflower Tea, a demonstration of the stranger herbal remedies of yesteryear, a multisensory, hands-on game to explore herbs/spices, and the creation of cinnamon-infused pinecone creatures.
