Then we played a "Bee of Service" version of the classic party game "Don't Eat Pete". You cover the board with tiny treats, send one girl out of the room, pick a secret square. When she comes back she can remove one treat at a time until she uncovers the secret square, then everyone yells "Don't Eat Pete!". This was soooo much fun. We had several boards going at once so more people could have turns. The board was key, it had honeycomb shapes and each honeycomb had some kind of service appropriate for 8-11 year olds pictured on it.
Bee of Service Game:
Last we made peanut butter and honey play dough and made honey bee sculptures with it. Okay, most of the sculptures weren't really honey bees, but it was tons of fun. (if you put the honey, peanut butter, and milk powder in a freezer or ziploc bag before the activity you can have the girls knead/squish it around in the bag it until its combined without having any sort of cooking mess...). There are lots of recipes on the internet for peanut butter play dough. Avoid the ones with powdered sugar, they are just way too sweet. Have Fun!
you can right click on the picture of the game and save it to your computer's "downloads" folder. Then you can open it up on your computer and it should print.
My peanut butter playdough recipe:
2 Tbs peanut butter, 2 Tbs morning moo (milk powder), 1 1/2 tsp agave.
You can put one serving in a ziploc, or to simplify, multiply recipe by number of desired servings and stir it up in a mixing bowl.
