A Children’s Maple Day is set for Saturday, March 10th from 2 to 4 pm at the Silas Wright House, 3 East Main St., Canton.
Children will have the opportunity to tap a maple tree the old-fashioned way, make “wax-on-snow,” and learn about syrup-making.
There will be a new exhibit on maple tapping and syrup-making, and samples of maple cream and maple coffee. A basket from Finen Maple Products will also be raffled off at the event.
Children’s books, like The American Girl’s Handy Book, by Lina and Adelia Beard, and American Kids in History: Colonial Days, by David C. King, are available for purchase at the SLCHA. Old-fashioned toys like spinning tops, jacks, and Jacob’s ladders are also available, and SLCHA members receive a 10% discount on most items in the Gift Shop.
