Children's Chores Pioneer Days - Ft. Christmas

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 7:25 PM

Today the boys and I went to Fort Christmas to learn about the types of chores that kids would have had to do during the pioneer days.

The boys learned about churning milk to make butter, about how to make cane syrup, they did some laundry, pumped some water, made chicken feed, and tried some butter, cane syrup, and jerky.

They also learned how to make corn meal.

Looks like they are hard at work, huh?

The guide told us about Fort Christmas and why it was established and also what settlers had to do when they moved into this land in Florida.  She talked about the crops they planted and also the animals they hunted.

The first thing settlers had to do was build a place to sleep and then start planting.

Here the kids are trying the butter and the cane syrup.
