    The Viking life The everyday life of a Viking was all about obtaining food and shelter. This was no different for the children who worked and did not go to school. Everything that a child needed to know it learned by doing as the adults did. The Vikings were farmers and traders and the women took care of the household.

Games and playing was their way of practicing before going to war and could therefore mean the difference between life and death.
