Pioneer Day (by Keegan)

My class had a special day yesterday called Pioneer Day where we could dress up like we were from The Olden Days. I wore Mum's shirt and Dad's ug boots to school.

This was a game called "Loading the wagons". We had to buy supplies like flour, tea and potatoes to last us six months.

My teacher showed all of us how to play hopscotch.

Some people made a doll.

We played noughts and crosses on chalk boards.

I liked making jam, butter (by shaking a jar of cream), and buttermilk biscuits.

I made this toy with a button and string. Do I look like a cowboy to you?


  1. Looks like fun! Aimee has a few homesteading videos where they show you how to live very simply like a pioneer - making butter, butchering chickens, canning, etc.

  2. You do look like a cowboy Keegan! What a fun day!
