The little red hen is hard working, but she cannot persuade her friends to help her make a loaf of bread. Can you help? This enjoyable and interactive workshop uses the well-known folktale The Little Red Hen as a basis to explore how bread used to be made at Brixton Windmill. Children will have the opportunity to handle wheat, flour and bread; discuss whether they think the little red hen was right not to share; and help to make some flour.
