Fancy Nancy Aspiring Artist Tea Party

I love all things Fancy Nancy because she and I are Francophiles. Every situation is made better by speaking French, non?

We recently hosted a birthday party for another little Francophile.  Check it out:

Bookish Tea Party Fun: Fancy Nancy Games!

During our bookish tea parties, we play games! Nothing is cuter than seeing a gaggle of beribboned and bedazzled little princesses (and sometimes pirates) running around the bookstore on a scavenger hunt.  Here are some fun games we played recently.
Leah is super tricky as she hides the butterfly under the cups and then shuffles the cups around.  The party goers have to decide what cup is the right one.
SCORE!! The partygoer (BIRTHDAY GIRL) chooses the right cup!
Next is our famous scavenger hunt. Can you find the missing clothes for Fancy Nancy’s recital?
Where could it be???
You know what the extra fun bit about this game is? Whenever there are customers looking at books near these shelves, they instantly want to help the partygoers find the missing items. It’s SO cute!
What party games do you like to play with your guests aged approx 5-9?

Here’s a moment when we were caught off guard. We were finishing up the final touches of the party and pretending I was giving a manners lesson.  You should NOT make yuckky faces if you eat something you don’t like at a tea party.
