Let your children enjoy the magic of the festive season -- 18th-century style!

The Benjamin Franklin House will be throwing a little party for kids (5-11). It will include traditional carols like "Silent Night" and "Jingle Bells", all played on Franklin's favourite musical instrument -- the Glass Armonica. They will also be able to munch on some mince pies and make a some Christmas crafts to take home.

Your children will be too young to appreciate the significance of the house, but it was actually the London home of one of America's founding fathers. Benjamin Franklin was right in the centre of things when the United States struck out for independence, and helped to draft both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
