The event was wonderful, and I just
wanted to tell you about the different stations. There were 6 stations, and
each station was staffed by two adults. There was folk dancing (they LOVED
learning the Virginia Reel), a games station that used jump ropes and the
parachute game, a cooking station that made applesauce and butter (shake
whipping cream in a jar until it clumps together into butter), and paper
dolls. (People shapes pre-cut out of poster board can be purchased through
Lakeshore for $3.50/24 shapes--I've done this craft with my Brownies in the
past, gluing a felt swimsuit shape on them, then cutting clothes out of felt.
I love it because the dolls are heavy, long-lasting, and pre-cut!) There
was also a candle station (made ice candles in paper cups) and a cross stitch
station. The girls decorated paper bags to take home their treasures. Each
station lasted half an hour. When the last station was finished, we brought
everyone back together in a group and sang songs for half an hour.
