By kids and for kids, Family Fun Days at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio is an annual holiday family tradition.

The free event will take place 9-11 a.m., Saturdays, Dec. 8 and 15 at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, 951 Chicago Ave., Oak Park.

Junior interpreters, trained by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust, will guide families through the home during the 30-minute tours. In each room, the fifth-through-10th-grade docents will tell stories about how the Wright family celebrated the winter holidays at the turn of the last century.

During the Victorian Christmas celebration, the entire home will be decorated as it was when the Wright family lived in the home during the late 1800s and early 1900s. A 12-foot Christmas tree, decorated with traditional ornaments, will be set up in the Home and Studio playroom.

Froebel blocks — the same toys Wright played with as a child to learn about shapes and design — will be in the architect's Drafting Room for children to enjoy.

Free hot chocolate will be served outside in the Home and Studio courtyard. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.
