Paris, France

Decorations

There is nothing more iconic than the Eiffel Tower. Create it on butcher paper or find a large cutout of it. If you want to decorate in the colors of France use blue, white and red – the colors of the flag.

Music

The most famous French Operetta of the time was George Bizet’s Carmen. Play music from the soundtrack.

Language

Food

Besides a plate of bread, cheese and wine (I mean, grape fruit juice), think croissants, crepes and maybe even fondue (fun). Fish, duck and chicken dishes are popular French meats. Soups are also good.

Clothing

Fashion at the time was very similar to the English.

Crafts

You don’t have to be going to a masquerade ball to make a mask.

Or, if you have some Model Magic, which I love to use at camp, you can make an Eiffel Tower scene.
