Guide Review - Colonial Kids

Colonial Kids is an activity guide to life in the New World by Laurie Carlson. This is more than an activity and project book, students will gain an understanding of daily life in the colonies. Students will learn how colonial kids worked alongside their parents and what they did for fun. Students will make homemade toys and play some of the games that were played in colonial days. Students can make colonial clothes, learn about colonial homes, cook and taste colonial food and experience many other aspects of daily life.

The projects use everyday materials and have clear, easy-to-follow instructions. For all ages.
