As a lover of Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, a pioneer party celebrating these adventurers would have been a dream come true for me for a birthday party when I was growing up! I did, actually, have a Holly Hobbie party, which gives you a hint to my age :-)!
But, if you are interested in having a party that has a pioneer theme, it might be fun to follow some of the things that took place in Little House books.
This party idea is so unique, and there are lots of things you can do for party games and activities. Take inspiration from things that children did in pioneer days to come up with some really fun things to do. I think the kids will find them extra fun because they are things they have probably never done before! Here are some suggestions to get you started:
Several of these things can double as a party favor too!
Create a scene on top of a cake, either with figurines or art, of a log cabin, covered wagon or farm scene.
When I was growing up, the Holly Hobbie character was popular, and there were 3D cake pans of Holly Hobbie. If you aren't familiar with her, she was the image of a little girl in a prairie dress wearing a sun bonnet, and the bonnet covered her face. If you look on Ebay or Amazon, you might be able to find a Holly Hobbie cake pan.
