So you're looking ahead to MLK Day and wondering what you're going to do with the kids.

    Well, Old Sturbridge Village is offering free admission for children, who are accompanied by adults, through the end of the month -- a savings of $7 per child. And on King Day, the Sturbridge living-history center will offer a special program, "Life After Slavery: The Clo Pratt story," presented by storyteller Tammy Denease Richardson.

    "Life after Slavery'' tells the true story of Clo Pratt, a slave who is freed in 1774 after her the death of her owner. In character as the former slave, Richardson recounts the trial and tribulations of an African-American woman who must figure out how to earn a living and make a place for herself in Colonial New England.

  Besides the special program, kids can also ice skate (bring your own skates), sledding on OSV's 1830s-style sleds, and take sleigh rides (snow permitting). Afterwards, head inside to warm up and take part in hands-on crafts and activities.
