Put your thinking cap on during February Vacation week and explore how people built houses in Colonial Massachusetts. What worked best? What failed? How did they learn from their mistakes?

In this hands-on activity, kids will:

Learn about the tools of the trade and which materials they used most.
Experiment with different construction techniques at each of our workshop stations using popular building toys.
Fold and decorate your own paper house to take home.
Join us daily at 11:30 & 1:30 for Why Do We Have Gables? to explore which parts of historic buildings are the strongest. Kids will be making shapes with their hands and bodies in this fun, interactive program.

School vacation programming is included with admission to The Gables. Check 7gables.org for hours, rates, and information. The program is free for Salem residents with valid i.d. and members of The House of the Seven Gables.
