Transcript of Colonial Leisure Activities

Colonial Leisure Activities New England In their free time, the New England colonies went to church or went to school. New England's religion was puritans. Parents taught their children how to read and write. Although girls could read, they were not allowed to go to school. The New England colonies did not have a lot a free time. When they did they spent the time the people of colonial times had both individual and team sports, board games, gambling, card games, and so much more. Whatever was fun at the time was what the people did. Recreation then was considered to be entertainment, and to take them away from the hard work that they did all day long. Middle Most of the children's time was spent doing schoolwork , but when they did have free time they would play games like rolling the hoop, stoolball(cricket),and blindmans bluff(tag).

Indoor activities were listening to music, sing-song(everyone would sing along to a song), and reading magazines and books.
