The Homeplace (HP) staff at Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area presents Children’s Day: Colors on The Farm on Saturday, June 11. The day will celebrate the International Year of Forests by focusing on how farm families used the forest to color their lives.

Activities will be taking place on the HP farm from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Mother Goose stories and group games will be offered throughout the day at 10-11 a.m., 11 a.m.-12 p.m., 1-2 p.m., and 3-4 p.m. Admission is $4 ages 13 and up, $3 ages 5-12, and free for ages 4 and under (includes HP admission).

Cindy Earls, Special Events Coordinator, said, “Come to The Homeplace to celebrate the International Year of Forests and experience the bright colors that filled the lives of 1850’s farm children. Learn how natural dyes colored their clothing, minerals and plants colored their furniture and homes, and colorful folktales entertained them.”

Nashville native and professional storyteller Cherri Coleman will be at the HP to charm children with her whimsical portrayal of Mother Goose. Her folklore and traditional tales include games, songs, and hands-on discovery for young and old alike.

The Homeplace is located in the Tennessee portion of LBL. Pack a picnic lunch, bring your camera, and come ready for an enjoyable day of fun and discovery. The day offers a variety of activities for all ages, but is especially geared toward ages 5-12 and home educators.

Come out and experience a farm child’s life and be entertained by Mother Goose and her stories.  Both children and adults will be sure to use their imaginations as they learn about life in the 1850s.
