Tea Party Games :: A Cupcake Jigsaw Puzzle Race!

by | Sep 15, 2012 | Little Flowers, Little Flowers Tea Party, Little Flowers Wreath IV, Mother-Daughter Tea 2012, Party Games, Puzzles | 1 comment

You all know that my family loves puzzles, right?   So of course I had to find a way to tie them into Our Little Flowers Girl’s Club Mother-Daughter Tea Party this year!  ðŸ˜‰  When a friend of mine mentioned some small “Cupcake” games & puzzles she had seen at Barnes & Noble they sounded perfect!

I ended up purchasing a 4 pack of 60 Piece Puzzles and two 100 piece puzzles, since I couldn’t decide whether to break the group into 3-4 teams or 2 teams, for a “Cupcake Puzzle Race.”  When I gave the girls the option, they all wanted to go with Mothers versus Daughters!  I gave them first pick of the two 100 piece puzzles and they choose the white cupcake with the pink flower on top.

*Only a couple of the puzzles are currently available on Barnes & Noble online, and Amazon doesn’t seem to have these particular cupcake puzzles either,  but they do have a few other options. I especially love these little Nature Puzzles.  

I put the moms at our train coffee table and set a card table up for the girls.   With a “Ready, Set, Go!” we started the race!  It was very close, but us moms did end up winning!

It was SO. MUCH. FUN!!  I’ll definitely be keeping “Puzzle Races” in mind for future parties!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
