Pioneer Day Crafts

Guest Author - Diane Claus

Every year Pioneer Day is celebrated on the 24th of July. Here is a very simple craft that kids can make to celebrate Pioneer Day.

Hand carts of Covered Wagons- pioneers pulled their handcarts or walked along their covered wagon that was pulled by a yoke of oxen. They sang as they walked.

In the 1840's and 1850's the members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints were being persecuted everywhere for their religious beliefs. 70,000 pioneers traveled more then 1,000 miles from Nauvoo, Illinois to the Salt Lake Valley in Utah. Many of the Latter Day Saints migrated west they did not have money for oxen pulled covered wagons so they pulled hand carts. Because of the amount of work required to pull hand carts they left most of their possessions behind or dropped them along the wayside as they went.

Every year Pioneer Day is celebrated on the 24th of July. Here is a very simple craft that kids can make to celebrate Pioneer Day.
