Scrapbooking: It's not just for Grandma anymore!


At today’s Paste, Glue, Scissors, and You! program, the Maltz Museum tries to get kids hooked on the hobby of taking old photos and artifacts and gluing them into a book. The four-week course begins this afternoon with the basics. A month from now, kids should have a scrapbook that looks something like the museum’s archived family albums, which feature ticket stubs, programs, and heirlooms and are used by teacher Amy Fishbach as a guide. “It looks like they collected every invitation they got to every fancy ball in every Jewish social hall over the years,” says Mark Davidson, the museum’s public-programs manager. “It’s all the stuff my wife always yells at me to throw out.”
Tuesdays, 3:45 p.m. Starts: Feb. 27. Continues through March 27
