LetsPlayHistory.org (LPH for short) is the budget-friendly one-stop shop for easily connecting with history enthusiasts, resources, and events across America, and for creating time travel adventures, killer school projects, and award-winning fundraisers all your own! We make it easy for you to experience real history first hand, and connect with your own sense of curiosity.

By providing you and other enthusiasts with the best in living history how-to instructions, online classes, free planning tools, great resource lists, and a soon-to-be specialized social site  – the LPH Community - you’ll be able to enjoy history as a hobby AND rub elbows and make friends with other history nuts who are also having a blast in the past!

Feed your historical imagination!
(everybody has daydreams)

.

Maybe you daydream about starting an authentic Victorian tea catering service…  Or perhaps you have always wanted to experience driving a four horse chariot at full gallop…  Or maybe it’s the nostalgia of a 1940′s swing dance that captures you…  Then again, finding a Civil War group in your area may be exactly what you’re after…

No matter what your historical interest might be, LPH is working toward collecting the resources you need to achieve what it is you envision.

Best of all, we can even help you finance your history hobbies through event hosting and historical crafting.  (Now, how cool is that?!)

.

Let your history hobbies pay for themselves!

.

As many history hobbyists have already discovered, re-creating hand made “period” items can in itself be a lucrative means of hobby support. Skilled craftspersons are always in demand, and at LPH you can market your historical skills or products in a number of ways.   We welcome you to sell books, teach classes, blog, and otherwise share away!

We even provide you with free event planning tools and group charters so you can take the reigns and start hobby groups and fundraising events in your own area.

If you are a history expert with knowledge to spare, and you would like to help build the LPH site and offerings, please let us know your specialty via our Contact page.   Our main Live It! page also contains a short list of content we’re actively looking to subcontract.  We’d love to feature YOU!

Resources Now and Forthcoming

.

The LPH Community is our ultimate, long term commitment.  Presently in the making, we are eager for technical advances and funding to catch up to our vision.   In the meantime, LPH has begun to create exciting how-to site pages and book titles, off-line community projects, and has also begun collecting source documents for digitization.

So take a look around the site, make use of our valuable freebies, and be sure to join us on the LPH Blog for snippets of fun with history (feed available).

.

Extensions of LPH

.

LPH is regularly working on off-line edutainment activities.  One of our largest is the national “American Renaissance” holiday program, 3 Sun Thanksgiving.  With 3 Sun you can enjoy our incredibly diverse heritage in a fun new way (fall activities or year round groups), and at the same time spread some amazing, life-changing kindness!

The ideas never end…
