Fun and Games in Colonial Times
By Eva and Georgia
When did boys and girls work?
Boys worked early in the morning before school and after school. Girls worked just as hard.
Did children have time to play?
They did not much time to play. Some of the games that we play today, they played back in colonial days such as, tag, blind mans bluff, here we go round the mulberry bush, and london bridge is falling down.
Were there any laws for fun?
There were three things you could not do and they were no sledding, swimming and dancing.
