Mr. Paca's Backyard, Session Ten
William Paca House, 186 Prince George Street
Today we are going to end our year with a tea party in the garden. First we will listen to a story called Little Miss Spider's Tea Party. Dear Miss Spider, as hard as she tries, can't persuade the insects to come to her party because they are afraid she'll eat them. Hear how a drenched moth unwittingly saves the day. Then the children will decorate cookies for the tea, color their place mats, and play games including tea pot rally. We will then say goodbye to the friends we have made.
