Drawing the map of their neighbourhood at age 5.
Another idea for your pioneer day is to have parents/grandparents draw their neighbourhood as they remember it when they were 5 (or 10) years old. You just have to provide paper and markers. The participants start by drawing their home and then add things as they remember them. They can also write little stories as their memory is triggered by drawing the map of their neighbourhood at age 5. It's a great way for family members to share family stories and for children to visualize what their parents early experiences might have been. Children can draw their neighbourhood as they remember it today and also add stories to their drawing.
