Ingalls homestead

A while ago we went to the Ingalls homestead (as in Laura Ingalls Wilder). It was so fun with lots of hands-on actives like mowing the lawn with a push reel mower, making a jump rope, and making cornhusk people. I also got to drive a team of horses, pumped water from a well, go to a prairie school, and wash my shirt like Laura did. Finally, we got to ride a horse, sharpen a knife on a whetstone, grind wheat and corn, and shell the corn with a grinder.

There where lots of animals there too like: kittens, chickens, and a calf. We had so much fun we decided to stay the whole day. The Ingalls homestead really lets you experience how they lived.
