In January the second grade studied the Pioneers and the Oregon Trail. After they were done learning about them they were able to have a Pioneer day. They were allowed to dress in Pioneer type cloths. Any day when they don't have to wear their uniforms is a good day!! We didn't have too much in the way of pioneer cloths so I put in a call to Sis. Bingham, yes the Sis. Bingham whose ranch we went to get pecans. I knew she would have something we could use. She is definitely the person to go to when you need random things and when, like me you wait till 8:30 the night before to start looking for things! She had a hat, suspenders and a red bandanna that worked PERFECT!! She had already given him cowboy boots (pecan picking)and he just wore a plaid shirt and his school pants. He looked like he could have been on a wagon train headed out west! It was a fun day filled with pioneer stories, games, and Little House on The Prairie movies. They also made butter which they got to try. I also got to try it and it was DELISH!
Looking like a real pioneer boy!
Excited to be going outside to play pioneer games.
The kids were excited to learn that the pioneer children played some of the same games as they do. One of the games they played was duck, duck, goose.
Hunter got caught and ended up in the mush pot.
Hunter and his friend Jansen.
They made covered wagons. You can't see it in the picture, but Hunter's had a crazy wheel.
They made real butter.
It was MOST delish!
One of the best parts of the day was eating lunch outside!
