Even though it isnt pioneer day where I live, we can still remember and celebrate pioneers
What are pioneers?
A Pioneer is someone who goes somewhere or does something first and shows others the way to follow.
We can remember the pioneers from old days who settled areas first and bought our family to our country. We can remember the first person in our family who joined the church. We can remember how hard people worked in previous generations.
How can we be pioneers?
Pretend to be pioneers going on a trek.
Get children to carry or pull items they would want to take with them
Make (flat) wagons by gluing paddlepop sticks onto paper
If you have girls make bonnets, dress up
