Create a Peg Doll
Come along to Maitland Gaol these school holidays and enjoy a mini tour and the opportunity to make your very own peg doll.
Making peg dolls is an activity from the past and was popular amongst children in the 19th century when they had to entertain themselves with whatever materials they could find. It will also give children the opportunity to learn about all sorts of prison uniforms over the ages.
There will be four peg doll designs to choose from including, a prisoner, turnkey, governor and matron.
