>Planning a Fancy Nancy Tea Party

As you can tell by the pictures above, we play dress up pretty often.

Little Girls everywhere are familiar with Fancy Nancy and love the books. They also love playing dress up and acting like a "big girl." My daughter, 2 1/2 loves to read Fancy Nancy and imitate her. She always must have sprinkles on her ice cream and putting on her pink sunglasses makes her feel fancy. Fancy Nancy is a great way to incorporate reading into fun. What better way than to host a Fancy Nancy Tea Party and read a Fancy Nancy Story. Twittermoms and Harper Collins came up with this wonderful idea to put together a Fancy Nancy Tea Party. I don't know about your kids but I know my daughter would love it!

Planning a Fancy Nancy Tea Party:
1- Pick a theme: My theme is Fancy Nancy Poetry Tea Party, Story & Dance.
2- Decorate!!! Lots of Pink! Help your child make decorations. Add Sparkles because Sparkles are Fancy.
3- Bake some cookies and add pink icing with sprinkles. Sprinkles are fancy!
4- Get dressed up!!! Have fun with costumes or dresses, costume jewelry and accessories. Get all fancied up!
5- Set the table with some fancy tea cups & plates.
6- Sit down and enjoy. Remember when you hold your teacup to point your pinky up because that is fancy.
7- During tea time, have conversation about your day with each other.
8- Storytime: Incorporate a Fancy Nancy Story.
9- Activities: Print out activities on the Fancy Nancy website - click here.
Perhaps you can even create a poem together. I know my daughter loves to rhyme! She rhymes everything now.. (Mama Pajama plays the pedoma... lol)
10- Dance: Dancing just makes everything so much fun!!! So why not put some music on and dance?

My daughter is going to be very excited to have a tea party!! I hope all of you have fun with it too!
