Children’s Day on the Farm at The Homeplace
Children’s Day on the Farm is Saturday, May 21, 2016 at the Homeplace 1850s Farm in Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area. The annual event runs from 1 to 4pm. Children can step back in time and take part in a variety of fun activities. This year’s theme is, “Let’s Go Play!”
“Farm children worked alongside their parents to help raise crops and livestock for the family’s use,” says Cindy Earls, Lead Interpreter. “Children’s Day helps today’s kids understand how farm children lived and played in the 1850s.”
Homeplace admission is $5 for ages 13 and up, $3 ages 5-12, and free for ages 4 and under.
Children may participate in the lighter side of life in the 1850s. Activities include playing with old-fashioned toys, learning about music and sampling classic sweet treats. Staff also offer a farm animal scavenger hunt, and teach children how to make shadow puppets. Children may also enjoy outdoor group games and competitions in 1850s style.
The Homeplace is located in the Tennessee portion of Land Between The Lakes. Activities are available for all ages. Home educators especially will find opportunities to engage children through play
