What were some fun winter games that the pioneer children used to play around at Christmas time? Downhill sledding was very popular amongst the young ones and skating too! However only the boys would skate, as it was seen un-ladylike at the time. Another fun activity that was common was dog sledding! Hitch the dog up to the sled an away we go! Last but not least, Aunty over the Shanty was a favourite game of the children, which is somewhat similar to dodge ball.
