Program description: Laura Ingalls Day is a compilation of programs normally taught in a 1 hour block, designed for a kickoff or finale to summer reading, or an event that will bring in patrons during the winter. Starting with sugaring off, we will make sugar on snow, then move onto fresh butter, cheese, and sourdough bread. Next we will plant a garden on the library grounds or start transplants for growing on the windowsill. We can wash up with home made old fashioned lye soap, and hand dip candles. Wrap it all up by meeting farm animals and learning to care for them just like Laura and Mary. Based on book: Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this program can incorporate reading the book and eating between stations. The program can last 4-8 hours, depending on age group and individual or combinations of stations. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. Great for the 2019 summer reading program.
Space/special requirements: A full community kitchen is preferred, though this can be run on a hot plate from a power supply. A windowsill or 4x4 area for planting seeds, and shade and water spigot for the petting zoo.
