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 aged 5-11, which will include some sing-along carols like Silent Night and Jingle Bells, all played on Franklin's favourite musical instrument: the Glass Armonica.

In between singing they can munch on some mince pies, and make some Christmas decorations to take home.

Your children will be far too young to appreciate the significance of the house, of course (what 5-year-old kid is interested in the War of American Independence?), but just so you know: it was originally home to one of America's Founding Fathers, who helped to draft the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. No doubt they'll try and slip him into the conversation at some point -- so hopefully your kids will at least come away remembering who he is.
