4th of July Treat Table- a Tribute to George

I think George Washington is my favorite of all the patriots.
We will be honoring him and a few of his 
many accomplishments this 
4th of July ...

as the kids fill up their containers,
I hope they learn a little something too!

we say it is Jack Murphy's
(I know it looks a little like Thomas Jefferson but I swear it is GW, he did a big report)

  16. What a delightful post! We visited Mt. Vernon in September and learned so much about George Washington. The kids loved learning about his terrible teeth and seeing replicas of the 'dentures' that he wore. I love your chocolate dollars and cherry cones. Jack's drawing is perfect!
