Parker decided way back in spring that he wanted his birthday party
to be a “Tom Sawyer” party this year. Truth be told,
I wasn’t even going to have a friend party for him… but who can resist
such an excellent idea??
It was his idea that everyone dress up in “old-time clothes”
and I thought we could play either games that
related to the story of Tom Sawyer or games
that Tom would have played when he was a kid.
In the photo above they are playing, “Button Button Who’s Got the Button”.
(they are on the newly finished floor ~ did you notice?)
We also played Frog Detective which was one
of the kids’ favorite games.
Then we went outside where I had chairs already
set up to play “Winkum” which was a smashing success!
Then we came inside for some
cave (fort) building!
It was a great birthday!!
