Early Settlers II
This week, we examine what the early settlers might have eaten and the games the children might have played.
First, work up an appetite by doing a lot of chores. In this case, move a log into position so we can play a game after we eat.
The moms never found out if early settlers would have eaten scrambled eggs, but it's easy to cook in a cast iron skillet over a fire made from twigs, so we went with it.
Make sure there is absolutely NO syrup left on your spoon.
The kids learn a balancing game popular in the Colonies.
Good settlers learn the Pledge of Allegiance. And there wasn't even an America at the time! (Aren't we forward-thinking?)
P.S. Lest you think I'm just totally inept, there was another fire burning off to the side here. It was bigger, with taller flames, and that is where my apron kept billowing. (Ok, so that still doesn't disprove my ineptitude, but I feel a little better by telling you that.)
