Pioneer Activity



We had a really great primary activity last Saturday. The kids got to dress up and go on a "trek". They began by building their covered wagons... and choosing what things to take (they only had room for 5 things). Things like the dishes had to be left behind and things like cornmeal and blankets were chosen to go. Then they stopped at different stops like Sugar Creek and Chimney rock where they made butter and tried jerky. After arriving at the Salt Lake Valley they had a little parade around the church and ate homemade icecream afterwards. It was so much fun, my only regret.... I forgot my camera!!!
