Patrick Henry homeschool day

Patrick Henry’s Red Hill Homeschool Day | 10-1 to 10-2, 2020


Join us for our Annual Home Educators’ Living History Days for children at Red Hill Homeschool Day. An HEAV Homeschool Day sponsored event. This homeschool day program is geared for children ages 8 to 10, but children younger and older benefit and can participate in the hands-on experience of 18th-century life.

Programs rotate among stations like spinning and weaving, flax to fiber, Colonial games, a walking tour, blacksmithing, pottery, Colonial
medicine, and tin punching. Groups may register by providing the number and ages of children, as well as the number of adults in attendance.

Homeschool groups are welcome, but please have one person responsible for registering the group.


Children’s author Jenny L. Cote will also be here for a creative writing workshop! There is no extra charge for this amazing experience. For
more information on Jenny, visit her website www.epicorderoftheseven.ne
