A Boston theater theme event will make for a very memorable 4th of July. Here are some birthday celebrations in the birthday to help you create a fun and entertaining day for everyone.
Mixing some history with some fun is a great way to learn something new. Consider asking everyone to dress in the clothes of the era. There is a lot of variation here, as there were sailors and those who worked on the ship, the colonists, the city child, and of course, the Freedom Zone declared Mohawk Indians who entered the town under the dark at night and threw all that tea on board!
Here are some guides to what the American colonial bar:
o Triangle hats
o A white loose fitting shirt to wear under a vest or a coat
o vest and or cape
o Trousers, use corduroy, rolled up to the knee
o Socks long socks from knee length
o Black shoes (with buckle if possible)
o Wear a fife, drum or hand-held watch
Women clothing would include:
o A mop hat or fabric, sometimes a hat
o A long dress
o A tucker that is a piece of linen, muslin or the like, worn by women about the neck and shoulders.
If you think dressing in your costumes is not your thing, consider asking everyone to do and wear a hat from the era. You can even consider a project for the children who will attend. It can make hats from goods you provide. At that time, it was considered treason to go against the British king. If you were accused of treason, it meant a death sentence. Freedom Son's disguise explained to avoid being accused of treason.
Making Mohawk headgear can be a fun and learning activity for the kids, as well as the adults in the group. You can even consider adding some color to the war.
To accompany your theme "Boston Tea Party" you can consider throwing the reaacting tea overboard. Place signs, "No taxation, without representation" around the party. Find empty cardboard boxes and make tea signs on the drawers. Tea was sold in large blocks these days. Let the children throw the tea out of the specified boat area and into the selected water. It is a good time to discuss how freedom of expression and the right to assemble is something that our ancestors fought so hard
to achieve. Therefore, we enjoy the freedoms we do today.
Some activities that children attended in colonial times may be activities you present at your tees party in Boston. Grass bowling, bobbing for apples, playing tags are activities adults can enjoy with their children.
