Remembering the Boston Tea Party

On December 16, 1773, colonists in Boston boarded ships carrying taxed tea from the UK and threw it overboard in an act of revenge against the British Government. The Boston Tea Party was a central event in the American Revolution, as the crisis grew and the Revolutionary War began near Boston in 1775.

How can you celebrate the Boston Tea Party with your children? Older kids can make boats , do a history activity or put on a play. Younger children can make a simple boat or color some activity pages. Post a link in the comments below to show off your artwork!
