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!
Do you have an idea of how to throw a Fancy Nancy Tea Party.
