Fun in cowgirl party mostly happened in doing things which is rough and tough. Try out some game for your kids to have more excitement and be more like a cowgirl.
For the third game the girls clasped hands and formed a circle. Susie’s hat was placed in the center on its crown. Then the girls, keeping their hands clasped, tried to pull and push each other so as to make someone knock the hat over. Each girl who bumped the hat over dropped out of the circle. The hat was righted and the game went on, until a single winner remained.
By this time the girls were ready for a quiet game. The winner of the last game started the new one. She said, “My horse is active.” The next girl in the circle to her right used the same sentence adding an adjective beginning with “b.” For instance, “My horse is active and bony.” The third said, “My horse is active, bony, and clever.” And so on around the circle. Anyone not able to think of an adjective beginning with the next letter of the alphabet dropped out of the circle.
Then followed a “Driving Race.” Two groups of three girls each were selected. In each group two of the girls were chosen as horses. These two girls made a seat of their hands, each girl taking hold of her right wrist with her left hand and taking hold of the left wrist of the other girl with her right hand. The horses were blindfolded. The third girl was then seated on this human chair, and all three were turned around two or three times until the blindfolded horses lost all sense of direction. The signal to start was given and the two teams raced across the room and back; the blindfolded horses being guided by the girl riders who directed them. Of course, the team getting across the room and back first was the winners.
By this time the cowgirls were ready for a feed. The long dining table with its red-and-white-checked cloth was set with shiny tin cups, plates and knives; no forks or spoons. For once these little girls could forget their ladylike manners. Eating creamed potatoes and a slice of meat loaf with a knife was not too bad, but by the time they reached the buttered peas and Jello salad they were laughing so heartily they could scarcely eat. A slice of apple pie to be eaten with the same knife, and a tin cup of milk completed the hilarious meal.
At the conclusion of the party the young cowgirls gave three “yippee” for the young hostess and her clever cowgirl party.
