Before play stations, electronics and modern toys of today, what did children and adults do for entertainment?
Why, quite a bit and they enjoyed themselves with lots of FUN! Let’s find out how?
Pioneer Games & Entertainment
It is so important for our kids to know of the past to better understand their own life and the future.
A terrific way to do this is by playing games that children, adults and families did in 1800’s.
If you visit this site HISTORIC NAUVOO  and click on the button ‘Pioneer Past Time Games and Activities’ under the section Pioneer Past times, you will find an extraordinary pdf you can print out of games you can play, and even make!
Now, for a sweet treat, I found from my reading that Ginger Cookies were common in the 1800’s.
Click HERE for my really delicious soft ginger cookie recipe.
Would you like to know about the TINSMITH  or the PRINTER  or the BARBER & DENTIST  or the MOUNTAIN MEN RENDEZVOUS  – simply click on each title and you will find pictures and more great information!
