Colonial Kids: An Activity Guide to Life in the New World

by Laurie W Carlson


Quick Overview

Young adventurers can imagine traveling to the New World and learn about the settling of America while enjoying activities such as stitching a sampler, pitching horseshoes, making an almanac, churning butter, tying knots, making a corn husk doll, and more. Helpful illustrations explain the step-by-step projects. 200 line drawings.


Colonial kids dressed like grown-ups and worked right alongside their parents to help make their brand-new communities succeed. But that doesn't mean they didn't have fun! Colonial kids were clever and inventive making their own toys - like wooden spinning tops and cuddly yarn dolls - and creating games like shooting marbles, pitching horseshoes, playing tag, and skipping hopscotch - games that are still enjoyed today. Size 0.38" H x 8.5" L x 10.88" W, 152 pages
