American Girls Addy Party
Thanks to Georgia Jones, who sent in this submission about a special event she hosted recently to celebrate Addy, the American Girl character. She also blogged about this event on her blog: http://comeintodelight.blogspot.com/, so go there for more photos and fun!
Here's what Georgia suggests:
1. Make some cloth napkins.
Cut up flour sack dish towels into four squares. The children can fringe the edges and then decorate with a stamp.
2. Make a terrific napkin ring using felt.
Pre-cut felt flower parts to make no glue, no cutting, no fuss, napkin rings. http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/Flowernapkinring.shtml
3. When life gives you lemons—make lemonade.
Serve pound cake and lemonade for refreshments. Bring in different kinds of juicers that are “hand powered” so the kids can squeeze their own juice.
4. Play a game with a feather.
Sit in a circle. Drop a feather into the circle and everyone blows to keep the feather afloat (similar to the balloon game).
