Detail Detective

You may not have tried this, but if you visit the Rosenbach with children there is a "detail detective" packet that your docent can provide for the house tour, which shows close-ups of collections objects and encourages kids to spot them on the tour. My own children were  guinea pigs for this project and they had a blast trying to locate them all. But why should kids have all the fun? Here are some details from objects on display in the house (these are different images than we use in the children's packet). How many can you identify?

If you're stumped, answers will be in a future post, or you can stop by for a tour (or our Sept. 29 Open House...) and keep your eyes open as a detail detective!
