Wake up in 18th century Concord and immerse yourselves in the daily lives of children and families. Discover the many similarities and differences between the daily lives and routines of children today and children three hundred years ago. Participants will prepare, cook, and eat an authentic colonial breakfast. Knead dough and shape rolls. Turn fresh berries into jam to enjoy year-round. Churn butter from farm-fresh milk. Work together to prepare breakfast for the family. Come away with a sense of lives lived long ago, how children’s lives have changed through time, and what may still be the same.
