Use it Up, Wear it Out, or Do Without: The American Homefront During World War II

On Saturday July, 2018 children ages 8-13 are invited to join the Nimitz Jr. Corps to discover how kids just like you helped the war effort on the home front! We’ll chow down on ration cakes, explore the exhibits to find all the ways that Americans pitched in, and learn how to spot enemy planes from below. There might even be an appearance by the iconic Rosie the Riveter herself.  Nimitz Jr. Corps is from 1:00pm-5:00pm and is free of charge. Participation is limited so please register by contacting Barbara Ford at 830-997-8700 ext. 225.

 

*Ration cakes are free of butter, milk, egg, and white sugar. We will also be doing an activity using butter and bread. If your child had any food allergies please let us know ahead of time
