Living like a Colonist! Update page 2
April 11 at 11:16 AM

I'm so excited to start today! We've been learning about life in the colony for the past couple of weeks and now I'm ready to break out some hands on stuff.

Here are the things I have planned for today

1. Making candles (from tea candles and crayons)

2. Weaving a rug (with strips of old t-shirts)

3. Making butter and homemade corn bread

4. Making a Jacobs ladder

5. Making a list of everything that uses electricity in our house

6. Using no electricity all day. Dun dun dun.....LOL

I'll post pictures and updates as soon as I can.

    I love that we haven't heard from you yet!  (As long as it means what I'm assuming...that you are so wrapped up in your awesome and fun activities..and following the no electricity rule)!

    Can't wait to hear about it, I totally want to do stuff like this when we get there!

    We I'd that. We actually tried to go without electricity for a few days....but I'm not a fan of roughing it. I would have died early during the colonial times....unless I was rich and had tons of servants.....nope, even then I would have been miserable. Lol
