Now what I’m going to tell you next will make sense if your kids have seen Liberty’s Kids approximately 5,000 times. This is an AWESOME series about the revolutionary war and my kids know more US history at age 5 and 7 than I do right now. In this story, the kids work at Ben Franklin’s print shop on the “Pennsylvania Gazette”. We love the story so much, that my son was Ben Franklin for the last school project and the last 2 Halloweens.
Well, at the Printing Museum, there is a room with a bust of Ben Fran, framed copies of the “Pennsylvania Gazette” and big, old and working printing presses. When we saw this, we almost fell over. No joke. It made our day.
Are we a little goofy? Absolutely. Do my kids want to print a paper the same exact way that Ben Franklin did? You better believe it.
So even if you don’t fall over at the sight of the “Pennsylvania Gazette”, your kids might just fall over at the chance to help print using giant equipment and messy ink.
