Home Crafts is a step-by-step account explaining how the settlers made candles and soap, carded and spun wool, dyed cloth and sewed samples. Your students will discover domestic home crafts through bright color photographs and simple, clear text.
In the past people could not buy all the goods they needed. Instead, they used and reused materials to make things for themselves. Leftover strips of cloth were woven into rag rugs, and cooking fat was burned in candles. Anything that might be useful in the home was saved for another day. Children will be intrigued by pioneer ingenuity and delighted by the creative flair of the settlers.
