American Girl Party School and Poetry Teatime Rolled Into One!

Party SchoolParty School (ending study of American Girl Samantha and the early 1900s)

Brave Writer mom, Christine, writes:

To finish our study of Samantha, we hosted a Victorian tea party and luncheon. We had yummy sandwiches, fruit salad, lemonade, and tea. The girls went on a hunt for beautiful leaves and we made leaf rubbings as our craft.

We talked about the era and even read poetry together! It was a wonderful end to the study of this time period.
