Theme: Winter Celebrations With the American Girls

Our Spring Schedule:

March 9 Samantha 1904 - We are celebrating a Victorian Christmas like Samantha this month. Our craft will be a snowman ornament that can also be used as a sweet smelling sachet and we will snack on Christmas cookies with hot cocoa & possibly peppermint ice cream. We will also play some parlor games like the young ladies played in 1904.

April 13th Rebecca 1914 & Claudie 1922-We will learn about Rebecca's Hanukkah & Claudie's Christmas during the Harlem Renaissance. We will snack on Jelly Donuts and plantain chips with milk & water. We will make an Angel wing ornament & decorate a candle holder. If time permits we will play games too!

May 11 Kit 1934- Christmas during the Great Depression is the subject for Kit's Christmas. Our snack will be waffles & Girl Scout cookies. We will craft an ornament from a glittered Christmas Ball  and discuss how even when it seems we only have a little, if we look around, we actually have alot.

FYI- Crafts or snacks may change due to availability or budget.
