Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds hosts First Vacation Week Program
Kids experienced colonial daily life this vacation week at Durant-Kenrick. Families spun yarn, dried apples, embroidered a handkerchief and learned about daily life in the colonial era in Newton for both Native and English families. Kids planted radishes and then watered it using a reproduction water pot and bucket. The most fun part was playing a colonial game! Some elements of this program will be used in a new school field trip program that will be piloted in the spring.
