A VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS
The girls got to do a lot of fun things. They made ornaments out of pine cones.
I think the "teacher" that was telling everyone what it was like back then, made it sound very fun and really helped them want to relive those days.
It was funny to hear some of the adults (not in our group) trying to talk their kids into buying for them, but the kids had their eyes on other things.
They also learned that if they kept the candle to long in the hot wax it would only cause the other layers to melt off and in turn made their candle smaller. So they had to work quickly in order to make a candle come out right.
I think they had more fun dipping though.
The girls enjoyed listening to them and some even sang along when they sang songs we will be singing when our troop goes out caroling.
When we reached the station for the girls to make cards, I thought it was so nice that they remembered their fellow girl scout sister (who was at home getting ready for her birthday party) and made her a card.
This troop really has very thoughtful girls and time after time have shown to be very caring and loving girls.
But, they all enjoyed getting to taste what it was like when it was finished! YUM!
So many people lived in the one small house. Even though it was tiny, we all thought it would be fun to live there. It was very cute.
It was a darling show. The story of Thumbalina was acted out by both live humans and puppets.
OK, to be honest, they just slapped some icing on the cookies and gobbled them right down.
