American Girl Tea Party-Dangerous Day for Boys 2017


American Girl Tea Party - Dangerous Day for Boys 2017

Parents and kids, mark your calendar for Saturday, August 26, 2017!  The Mountain Home Friends of the Public Library will be having the annual Library "American Girl Tea Party" and the "Dangerous Day for Boys" that Saturday.  There will be two sessions for both events - noon to 1:30pm, and 2:30 to 4:00pm - at the Mountain Home Public Library (790 North 10th East, Mountain Home - 208-587-4716).  Both events are free.  Sign-up for these events is now going on, at the Library.

The "dress up" American Girl Tea Party theme is from the "American Girl" book series and dolls.  This annual event takes place inside, in the Geared Up Commons Area in the Library, with two sessions - from noon to 1:30pm and 2:30 to 4:00pm.  The tea party participants are entertained by a discussion on manners and learning about one of the American Girls from the popular series.  This year's theme doll is Rebecca, a traditional Jewish girl who emigrated with her family from Russia in 1914, and now lives in New York City.  Rebecca loves to play dominos, and to crochet, and she is an aspiring actress. Many of the girls bring their own dolls and take part in the “Doll Parade”. They are served sandwiches, lemonade, cookies and traditional high tea by ladies from “The Friends of the Mountain Home Public Library” group.  There is a drawing at each session for the featured doll.  All in attendance will receive a party favor. Each session is limited to 50 participants (parents and girls included), so please sign up in advance at the Library.

The Dangerous Day for Boys will be the same day, outside in the Library's parking lot area, with two sessions - from noon to 1:30pm and 2:30 to 4:00pm.  This event is loosely based on "The Dangerous Book for Boys", and manners will NOT be discussed.  Instead, the boys' events will include bow-and-arrow shooting, the famous rubber chicken catapult, a washer toss, a ring toss,  a Bouncy House (weather permitting) and more.  Refreshments will be hot dogs, chips, and juice boxes.  The closest the "Dangerous Day" will come to manners will be the paper towels provided for napkins.  Again, each event will be limited to 50 participants, and boys must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible person.  Please sign up in advance at the Library, and wear your old clothes!
