September 1st :: Emma Nutt Day

History lesson for everyone today...who is Emma Nutt?  DUH, she was the first woman's female telephone operator!  I know, I had to look her up on Wikipedia too :)

Follow the link to read up on her - I especially like the "rules" section..."To be an operator, a woman had to be unmarried and between the ages of seventeen and twenty-six. She had to look prim and proper, and have arms long enough to reach the top of the tall telephone switchboard." - Wikipedia

Let's celebrate today with a fun game of good old fashioned Telephone. Here's a fun printable with the game rules.  (Just right click to save, and then print.)

I can't wait to play this "NUTTY" game and hear what my three year old has to say!

Have a Happy Emma Nutt Day!
