Colonial Fun Facts In Colonial times, children had to follow some very strict rules such as, not moving their mouth with any noise and the same for all their other body parts. There was not much milk in the winter. Instead the colonists used sweetened cider thinned with water. Sometimes they soaked bread in it. If you were not as wealthy as your neighbors, you would hide your fish in the cupboard when they came to visit. This is because you did not want them to think you were a cheap-o! When children thought a meal was good, they couldn’t say it was good.
