There's lots to do at Appleton Farms in Ipswich during April Vacation!

You’ll leave with a mini terrarium of your own, plus the skills to make bigger ones at home. All materials provided. Recommended for ages 7-10 but all are welcome. Kids must attend with adult, but there is no additional charge.  Pre-registration is required.
