Children's Chores Pioneer Days -- Ft. Christmas

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 7:26 PM

We learned about Outhouses and that the settlers use to use Spanish moss from the trees to wipe their bums. 

They would boil the Spanish moss to get the bugs out then let it dry to use as toilet paper. 

Interesting huh?  I never knew that! 

Eli was cracking me up about the Outhouse.

The lady asked why there was a quarter moon and he said, "To let the stinkies out!"

And she said, "You are right!"

The kids got to pump water and carry it to the wash basin to wash clothes.



Then they got to hang them up to dry.

I asked the boys in the end which job they would have preferred during the pioneer days.

Eli said he wanted the job of grinding the corn.

Hezekiah preferred the laundry.
