Ethan Allen Homestead Museum challenges children to explore

Posted: Updated:

This weekend the Ethan Allen Homestead challenges children to take on an explorer's quest.

Dan O'Neil inspired the Morning Show with the tale of how Ethan and Ira Allen discovered Burlington, Vermont.

Now, children can try their hand at exploration with the museum's Saturday event. Children can try lighting a fire with flint and steel, land navigation and even learn how to find edible food in a forest. Visit the Ethan and Ira Challenge: a Historical Scavenger Hunt October 12 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to start your adventure.

Watch the video to see our Steve Bottari try to light a spark.
