Free Pioneer Covered Wagon Pattern

Happy Pioneer Day! We have a gift for you. Your free pioneer covered wagon pattern. July 24th was always a fun day for me growing up. We got another night fireworks and another parade, because you know the 4th of July fireworks are never enough. There was pioneer activities: dressing up like pioneers, pulling handcarts, making homemade butter, learning pioneer games. It was a fun day learning about history.

Pioneer Day is not a holiday you’re going to find lots of decorations for in stores. So, unless you love pioneer antiques or replicas. Which I do! I don’t have many, but its fun to remember my family history. But wait – some of those things are out year round so never mind. So, if you just like to decorate for all holidays, which I like to do too! Try making something new for Pioneer Day.
