American Girl Holiday Tea Program

Every other month, the library hosts an American Girl Tea for children ages 7 years and up. They enjoy tea, hot chocolate and other refreshments while working on a craft. Each month is a different theme. December's theme was a Holiday Tea and the children made poinsettia centerpieces out of clay.

Posing poinsettia!

She made an ornament to go with poinsettia!

Children are encouraged to bring their American Girl doll or a special stuffed friend to the American Girl Tea programs because some of the projects involve creating something for their doll or stuffed friend. 

The next American Girl program will be a "love-themed tea" on Sunday, February 6th at 2:00 pm. Create BFF bracelets for you and your doll!  Check our Events Calendar for more information and to register.
