The event will allow participating children to ride mule-driven wagons and do hands-on activities around the farm.

Plano’s Heritage Farmstead Museum is hosting a Charlotte’s Web homeschool day on Sept. 26 for young children to experience what farm like was like for E.B. White’s characters Fern and Avery.

During the event, guests will tour the farm, do a scavenger hunt, ride on a mule-driiven wagon, participate in crafts, storytime, games of the past and watch demonstrations on from the blacksmith and cooper. Children can also participate in hands-on activities like washing laundry, plowing, planting seeds and feeding chickens.

“You are invited to join us for a day at the farm, in an atmosphere that encourages learning,” said Heritage Farmstead Museum Executive Director M’Lou Hyttinen. “Pack a picnic lunch and get ready to take a step back in time with us, explore the farm and enjoy the many fun activities and presentations available at this event!”
The event will last from 10 a.m. to noon with optional picnicking on the grounds until 1 p.m. Tickets are $12 per student and $5 per adult. The Heritage Farmstead Museum is located by 1900 West 15th Street.
