Bourne Hall Museum Kids Club

A World War 2 Christmas
Saturday 14 December, 1pm - 2.30pm
For many families, the most difficult part of a wartime Christmas would be spending the festive season apart from loved ones. Christmas luxuries were especially hard to come by at a time when even basic foods were scarce. People were forced to find substitutes for key festive ingredients. Gifts were often homemade and practical, and children’s toys were often made from recycled materials. Cards were smaller and printed on flimsy paper. Learn more at this kids club session.
