HANDS-ON SUMMERTIME DISCOVERY SESSIONS

Homestead Adventures 2017

TUESDAY–FRIDAY | 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

_________________________________________________


July 11-1
4   Life on The Farm ~ Ages 9–14
Make history come alive by wearing costumes, performing daily farm chores—such as feeding chickens, collecting and washing eggs, washing laundry outside, working in the garden, milking goats, making soap and grooming an animal, all BEFORE school in a one-room schoolhouse. During school, Remick Educator June O’Donal will teach you to write with a quill and do math with a slate and soapstone—you better behave, or you will wear the dunce cap! During recess, learn about and play with historical toys. After lunch there will be time to make historical crafts. No school on Friday as Adventurers will bake a dessert with gathered eggs, pick vegetables for a veggie platter, and plan a celebration for their families.

July 18–21   Art on The Farm ~ Ages 7–14
Using the farm’s surroundings as inspiration, art loving Adventurers will be led by Hettie Haudenschield as they find ways to get creative using a variety of art forms including drawing, painting and stenciling.

August 1-4   The Budding Herbalist ~ Ages 9–14
Forage for wild edibles, make yummy snacks and useful remedies from what you collect around the farm, and learn to ID plants using all your senses. Led by Remick Educator Carol Felice, this session will be a wonderful, hands-on experience for curious children.

August 8-11   Cooking: Soup to Nuts* ~ Ages 9–14
Join Remick Educator Dawn Evans in the commercial kitchen as you plan healthy menus, create a simple budget, prepare food, find recipes, practice good food safety and then enjoy a meal/dish together. Adventurers will bake, sauté and boil, use kitchen tools, learn basic knife skills, how to prepare meats and veggies for a recipe, and how to use what is local and fresh. [A $25 materials fee required for this session.]

August 15-18   Woodworking with Historic Tools* ~ Ages 9–14
In our farmstead woodshop, Remick Educator Dawn Evans will assist crafty Adventurers in completing two woodworking projects using hand tools (no power tools), and will teach about project layout, as well as types and grain of wood. [A $25 materials fee required for this session.]
