Christmas Cracker Take Away CraftChristmas crackers are traditional holiday party items known for their distinctive popping sound when pulled apart, revealing a festive trinket, gift or joke inside. Dating back to 1845, Christmas crackers became popular party features in Great Britain during the Victorian era. Today, Christmas crackers are usually made of short cardboard tubes wrapped in colorful paper. Many Christmas crackers include a crown-shaped hat made of tissue paper, which many believe to be reminiscent of the crowns worn by the Three Wise Men.

While crackers are perhaps most popular during the Christmas season, they can also be designed for every kind of themed event and celebration. In fact, throughout history, crackers have been designed for the women’s suffrage movement, war heroes, and even coronations of the British royal family.

Interested participants can make a reservation to pick up a free Christmas Cracker Take Away craft kit at the museum. Each kit contains materials for one Christmas cracker.
