A lovely group of Home Educated children came out to the farm to learn about Victorians. I explained about Sandfield Farm in the Victorian times and showed them the farmhouse, including the maids bedroom window. At the farmhouse we still have a Victorian cart wheel and plough. The children helped me to make butter and I showed them an old butter churn. A metal detector found a horse shoe from a heavy horse who worked on the farm, which I showed to the children and we thought about how large the horse must have been.
Victorians enjoyed making paper flowers and scrap books. The children made a Spring paper flower and cut up old farming magazines to make a farming scrap book page.
