A FUN WAY TO TEACH KIDS ABOUT PIONEERS!
Looking for a fun way to teach kids about Pioneers? Pioneer Day is a state holiday for us here in Utah. We celebrate Pioneer Day on July 24th, the day the Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley and started settling what we now know as Utah.
Whether you celebrate Pioneer Day in July or if you just want to help kids understand what Pioneer life was like, this fun Pioneer Treasure hunt will help you easily do that!
PIONEER DAY TREASURE HUNT
This Pioneer treasure hunt has 8 clues which you will hide around the house.
You’ll put them on places like the fridge or microwave.
