Hold on to your sleigh bells and learn how families prepared for Winter on a Flatbush Farm at Lefferts Historic House on Nov. 26.

Children will learn all about life on a winter farm and discover life in the olden days. Dutch treats and cookies add to the get-ready-for-winter workshops as children did in the 19th century farming village of Flatbush. Children make a candle, watch a master spinster spin wool thread, and enjoy Dutch treats made in an outdoor hearth from a Lefferts family recipe.

An added treat has St. Nicholas visiting at 3 pm. Have you been naughty or nice? Only St. Nicholas knows for sure. Little children get the chance to visit with him and find out what goodies wait in store.

“Winter on a Flatbush Farm” on Nov. 26 from 1 to 3 pm. $3.
