The Pioneer Farm Fieldtrip

Last week Casey's preschool class took a fieldtrip to a real Pioneer Farm to find out how kids and their families lived more than a 100 years ago! This is my kinda fieldtrip as I love anything old and totally romanticize anything Pioneer. I loved those little house books by Laura Ingalls! Casey's favorite part of the day was jumping in the hay, of course! But he also had the chance to play with wooden toys.

They explored inside real cabins and heard stories about the families who live in them.

They rolled dough, ground flour by hand and used tools.

They met the farm animals and learned the chores that kids would have done!

The fun day ended with a picnic lunch and we had a really great time together!
