Daisies on the Prairie

This weekend, I tackled meeting our Daisy troop out at a Little House on the Prairie outing on one of the local Girl Scout properties. It was cold but the experience was awesome! They got to learn all about how people who forged west in our country lived. There was a blacksmith and rifles and crafts and music and spindling yard and so much more!

Here they are grinding corn that they subsequentally made into Johnny Cakes over an open fire.
We learned that it was a hard but happy life in which everyone relied on each other. We have those pioneers to thank for building our great country:-)

Schools do such a good job of showcasing those days, I think!

Ok, my school did, at least. I realize in your case, it was through the Girl Scout program. :)

Oh how fun! I love going to visit and learn about places like that. And then I want to live there until I realize just how few creature comforts they had and how hard they had to work just to survive!

I went on a similar field trip when I was in school and I loved it, such a simple time and so important for children to learn.
