American Girl class: Kirsten week 2

This week, our Kirsten class fell on the day after Halloween, so I didn't have as much time to prepare the night before as I usually do... but it worked out fine anyway!

For snack we had Swedish crackers and Lingonberry Jam. We had a hard time finding the Lingonberry jam, since we do not have an IKEA close by. I called 4-5 places before I found it at a Foreign food market!

Our craft was a Midsummer's wreath. For the wreaths, I bought them at the dollar store, along with the ribbon and flowers. Each girl got one yard of ribbon to wrap around/through the wreath and decorate with bows. (I should have given them a yard more, especially for the medium sized ones.) The girls also got four-five silk flowers each, which they tucked into the wreath. It would be a nice decoration on a wall or door! They were pretty and sweet!
SEVERAL OF THE GIRLS WORE THEM ON THEIR
HEADS LIKE CROWNS!

A 1:00 CLASS PICTURE
I "dressed the part" in  a colonial dress & bonnet!
 Then we had time to work on our ongoing project, which we began this week. We are making braided mats, and I got the pattern from Kirsten's Craft Book and from Jamin here. I bought 3 types of fabric, and 7 yards of each. At home, I cut them into 1" strips (I had a hard time ripping them...)

This is the 1:00 class braiding...
I LOVED THE RIGHT GIRL'S LOOPED BRAIDS LIKE KIRSTEN!
