It was a hard life for the pilgrims. Their houses weren't very well made and were about the size of a small apartment. Even getting dressed was a chore because they had to sow their own clothes by hand and they had to sow their shirt and pants together so that they would stay up. They didn't have forks so they ate with their hands. Also they played a game called knicker box.
Their chores were hard. They had to plant and harvest all their plants by hand. Girls also had to muck the garden. They must of had to use water carefully since they didn't have running water and had to go outside to get it. Also to get meat meat to eat they had to shoot it themselves.
