Family Time


During the 1930’s people felt abandoned and desperate. Having people around you that cared was one of the most important things to keep someone going. The Great Depression was a time of great need, and although some families fell apart, most stayed strong and used time together as support. Children made toys out of whatever they could to entertain themselves together, while mom and dad might've enjoyed some TV. Not only was there TV, but families also played a bunch of popular board games to pass time.
