Natalya’s daughter, Sarah, always chooses interesting themes for her birthday parties. She loves history and so you know her birthday party will be a learning experience. This year she chose Civil War because that’s what she learned at the end of her school year and she fell in love with that time period. Take a look at how to turn the theme of Civil War into a birthday party!
First you create a simple tent. All soldiers stayed in these kinds of tents. It’s easy to make. Just use two poles and a few bed sheets.Natalya was lucky enough to have an old iron stove and that made the experience even more authentic!
