    I have been to Connor Prarie a handful of times and each time has left an impression in my memory. I love to churn butter and make candles. With this giveaway I am most curious about the chocolate making because I am a chocolatier/candy maker in my spare time. Thanks for the giveaway!!

    I have only been to Connor Prairie a couple of times but I loved how they honored the traditions of life out on the prairie. The living history is such a great way to remember the trials that these brave pioneers lived through. The smells of cooking over an open fire and the warmth of the homes just makes you long for simpler times while bringing an appreciation of the conveniences we take for granted.

    We are fairly new in town, and I have been hearing about Conner Prairie since we moved here. We would love the chance to see what everyone is talking about! My 2.5 year old adores animals and would absolutely love the horses. Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Teresa Mankin says

    I have been to Conner Praire many times, but we have family coming from Wisconsin and they have never been. I love the simplicity of the holidays celebrated at Conner Praire. Thanks for the giveaway. Merry Christmas!!

    Being an absolute fan of the life and times back then I love going to Conner Prairie and filling in the blanks for my kids (and husband) when the re-enactors are busy with another group. I truly have “be a re-enactor at CP” on my bucket list. I just love going back in time like that!

  6. Kerri D says

    I like the new Civil War era exhibit/portion of Conner Prairie. Really I like anything that makes my daughter smile, and most of it does. Thank you for the entry.

    It’s been forever since I’ve been to Conner Prairie – I still remember making corn cob dolls during a trip with my Girl Scout troop when I was in grade school. Did I see something about chocolate?!? Yeah, that’d be my first stop. :)

  8. says

    I’ve actually never been to Connor Prairie! I’ve always wanted to go since I moved here a few years ago, but the opportunity has never come up. I know my girls would love it immensely though. Thank you for the entry.

  9. says

    I want to go back because it’s been probably 20 years since I was there last (elementary school!) and I LOVED it. Unfortunately all I remember is that they showed you how to weave and churn butter and I wanna see it all again! 😀
