Making a Lenape coil pot

Kids learn how the Lenape lived, and then make a coil pot in the style of the Lenape people.

WILD Jersey is bringing a new program to several branches of the Ocean County Library this summer. There’s still time to register your child for the Lenape Coil Pots program.

Children will learn how the Lenape, NJ’s indigenous people, lived long ago. We’ll talk about what the Lenape ate, how they made their clothes and homes, and who did which chores – the men or the women. Kids will get to make their own Lenape-style clay pot, a coil pot.

There’s still room for a few more kids at several upcoming Lenape Coil Pots programs. Register now through the Ocean County Library website for the following dates:

Island Heights Branch
Friday, August 5, 2011
2:00 pm

Beachwood Branch
Thursday, August 11, 2011
3:00 pm

You can also schedule a Lenape Coil Pots program for your Girl Scouts, camp, or school group. Contact Debbie at WILD Jersey to learn more.
