Pioneer Day Wrap Up!

Finally....I am back! 

I know I promised more Pioneer Day stuff so Here are some of the things that we did to Celebrate this Pioneer Day!   I just didnt get a chance to post them earlier but I thought I would post the ideas for future Pioneer reference, Cowboy Days, Rodeo Ideas or just Fun.
We are definitely scaling back our party-ing due to the need to sell our house...and keep it clean! 
Ahhh....Super Mommy activities sure are messy! 
1Pioneer Flapjacks.  My son made these Flap Jacks at school when they were learning about Cowboys last year, so I tucked the little recipe away with our Pioneer Day supplies.  They are so easy and yummy!  And the kids can feel like Pioneers or Cowboys as they make their "starter" the night before.  I typed the recipe up for you super mommies below.  These would be fun on Cowboy or Rodeo days too!


Pioneer Flapjacks
In a large non metallic bowl, mix 2 C warm water with 1 T yeast. Let sit for a few minutes until dissolved. Add 2 C flour and stir. Cover. Let sit overnight in a warm place. (The kitchen counter will be fine.) The starter will raise and fall. In the morning you can make your Sour Dough Pancakes or as we call them Pioneer Flap Jacks.

Pioneer Flapjacks (Sour Dough Pancakes)

1 C Sour Dough Starter
2 T Cooking Oil
1 Egg
2 T Sugar
¾ C Flour
1 t Baking Soda
¼ t Salt

Add the oil to the starter. Mix. Beat the egg and mix it into the starter. Add the sugar and flour. Stir. Mix the soda and salt together in a small amount of milk. Quickly stir into the starter. Let it sit for a few minutes, then cook and enjoy.

(They were a big hit at our house!  And we ate them outside like real Pioneers.)


2Gunny Sack and Three Legged races.  These games are so old fashioned but I really dont think my kids have ever even heard of them.  My little guy is in one of our old pillowcases since I didnt find time to get some real bags from an animal feed store but I will get some one of these days...they are just so old fashioned looking that I can't resist adding them to the Pioneer Day box!























3.  Pioneer Stories.  This site has 3 interesteing stories about Pioneer Children if you are looking for some to read.  And then you can make some Covered Wagons like these to eat .  I used lifesavers, skewer sticks, large marshmallows, and graham crackers.  Just slip your skewer sticks into the lifesavers, add a 1/4 of a graham cracker, and set the marshamallows on.  So Easy!  And we had this little toy ox that we added too!

4Whittling...we let the kids do some whittling this year. (the older guy got  real pocket knife but little guys can use plastic butter knives and a bar of soap.)  I thought it would be fun to do by the fire (if you have a backyard fire pit).  We have a little chiminea in the back and the kiddos have been begging to have a fire in it.  I would recommend doing the whittling before it gets dark though! 


















5Make Floats in Mason Jars! 

Red, White, and Blueberry Float...I let the kiddos make a fun and patriotic treat I saw on our house hunting trip to California last week (it is a variation from the one I saw at Dennys).  It isnt really Pioneer-ish but I figured we could put it in a Mason Jar and that will make it look old fashioned!  Pioneers and Patriotic go together perfectly!

Rootbeer FloatsHere  is a fun recipe for easy homemade rootbeer (using seltzer water) and they were served in a jar! If you are really feeling like a Super Mommy, you could even make your own icecream!  We know the Pioneers had to do that!  My sister in law, Jen, has balls similar to these that they like to make homemade icecream with.  Or we have made it in a bag with this fun and easy recipe...just be careful not to get salt water into your icecream when you open it!  That totally ruins it!

I hope everyone had a great Pioneer Day!!
