We have had one busy weekend yet again. Saturday our local library did a colonial tea for girls ages 6-12 so I signed Hayley up to go. They had tea, treats and played all sorts of colonial games.
Some of these games were:
Hunt the Ring....
The players sit on the floor and form a circle around one player. She closes her eyes. The other girls in the circle keep their hands hidden and pass the ring back and forth behind their backs. When the player in the center says stop she opens her eyes and tries to guess who has the ring. If she's right then she switches places with that person.
Hide the Thimble (parlor game)
All players leave the room while one person hides the thinkble. The group returns to look for it and whoever finds it wins!
The girls were told to bring their favorite dolls, Hayley took her American Girl named Kristen. She really had a nice time. The library really does wonderful programs and they are all free. :-)
Then today we took both girls to a tea room to have a Princess tea with Belle. I think the girls were a little surprised by Belle, Hayley said she must have dyed her hair! LOL, but the experience was great. Great meal and great memories.
