We went to Williamsburg a couple years ago which the kids loved so we did a little version of Williamsburg for the party.
First the girls went to the Apothecary (our kitchen) and ground some mint from our garden to put in a bag to take home. It makes really good mint tea.
Next, they went to the print shop and used stamps to make notes, letters, or newspapers. They were very creative and make some very cute things.
Last, they went to the general store to choose some old fashioned candies to take home. Each child got an apple, we tied the color ribbon on that they wanted, and then they used skewers to poke holes in the apple and add cloves. We were going to do oranges but Katelyn said that she read that they did not have oranges because they could only grow apples in colonial times. Here are a couple of pictures taken after the party.
Here are a couple extra pictures from the party. We are so lucky to have such great friends.
