Step Back in Time at Old Maryland Farm
Need to add some activities to the list to keep your kiddos entertained this fall? Schedule a little field trip to Old Maryland Farm in Kettering! This working farm is open to the public so people of all ages can learn what farm life is all about. On their website, you can register for all sorts of fun activities that they run throughout the week.
First up is nature crafts, here you’ll listen to a story about a featured animal like a cow or goat, then craft! You can do an educational session like Incredible Eggs where you learn about eggs and meet the chickens who make them. Or maybe a family farm tour is more your style? You can explore the farm before the gates open to the public for the day. It’s a super neat way to get a behind-the-scenes look at what really goes on at the farm, plus you’ll get access to spots that aren’t usually open to the public—think of it as a VIP farm tour! Lastly, they offer the Fundamentals of Foraging, where they’ll actually teach kiddos how to search for food like our ancestors, showing them that food has to come from somewhere, not just the grocery store! Check out the calendar and see what sounds most interesting to you and your little ones!
