In 1850, farm children worked alongside their parents to help raise crops and livestock. Extra crops, animals and animal products were sold or traded at the local general store. Other farm-produced items and chores were traded with neighbors. For example, a widow might trade a pair of hand-knitted socks for a rick of firewood.
Just as in 1850, children will learn to do 1850's-type farm chores and earn credits for their hard work. Later, they can shop or trade credits at Children’s Day General Store for 1850's-era goodies.
This event is ideal for home educators.
