American Girl class: Molly week 4

We had another fun American Girl class this week! We discussed Book 4 in the Molly series, Happy Birthday, Molly! After we discussed the book, we made princess crowns. I gave each girl a 12 X 20" piece of foam, and gave them tracers which I found here. I printed the template and traced them onto card stock. Each girl traced the template two times (back to back) to make a crown. I also gave them jewels and glue to decorate the crowns. Then I had them poke two small holes in the bottom corners with the tip of a scissors, and gave them a 12-15" piece of 1/2" inch piece of elastic. They put the elastic through the holes and tied a knot. If the elastic was too long, they could trim it down a little.
 Tracing and cutting the crowns...

 So pretty!

 Another pretty crown with swirled designs!
 Our snack...
After craft, we had margarine tea sandwiches, lemon tart and peppermint tea for snack. One of the moms found the recipe for lemon tart online, and here it is:

Lemon Tart

¾ cup butter, room temp
½ cup white sugar
½ tsp vanilla
Pinch salt
1 ¾ c flour

1. Combine butter, ½ cup sugar, vanilla and salt in mixer. Add flour to make smooth dough. Press into 9” pan.
2. Refrigerate 30 minutes. 
3. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

1 ½ cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 Tbsp lemon zest
½ cup fresh lemon juice
½ cup flour
1 tsp powdered sugar

  1. Whisk sugar, eggs, zest, juice and ½ cup flour until smooth. Pour lemon filling into crust. 
  2. Cover edges to prevent burning. 
  3. Bake tart until set, about 20 minutes. 
  4. Cool completely and dust with powdered sugar.
Most of the girls liked it! It seemed like they either loved it or hated it! It was funny to hear the variety of opinions... They crack me up!

The 2:00 class...

 Cute crowns!

After snack, I read a story from the Welcome to Molly's World book. We discussed birthdays in the 1940's, and play things. They liked hearing that Molly played with jump ropes, like some of them do. We had talked about jump ropes from clotheslines in our Addy books too! 

It was another fun class day!

Psalm 103:3-5

...who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 149:4
For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.

Revelation 4:4
Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.
