Great product for hands-on activities and reenacting history!
May 29, 2015
Although it's written by a young man, it's got some fantastic ideas!! This is the first product I have found (I've been looking for a long time) that gives ideas and suggestions for making costumes for boys to reenact history activities, like pretending they are living during a specific period and letting them dress the part.
The craft ideas are also wonderful for helping a hands-on learner better understand the periods that are covered by this product. I am so happy I found this and it's helped us quite a lot. Now, to find a pair of football pants before we finish Colonial America! lol
