Pioneer-era crafts and games were featured Tuesday evening during Eastwood Elementary School's "Fall Back Into The Past" parent-child event.


Among the activities for students and parents to try their hand at were apple bobbing in the classroom of Crystal McGraw.

Checkers and other games were played in Renee Barr's classroom.

Eastwood teacher Nathan Reeder helped students dip pieces of string into hot wax to make hand-dipped candles.


Other activities included making butter by hand and sack races.
