American Girl class: Molly Week 5

We had a fun class in American Girls this week! In our book, Molly Saves the Day, (book 5 in the series) Molly and her friends go to Summer Camp. We discussed our book and then we made craft- something that Molly might have made at camp-- a sit-upon!
See the cute little cones? 

For this craft, I gave each girl a 26" square of vinyl with flannel backing. I found some fun zebra striped vinyl at Hobby Lobby. The girls folded their square around a few sections of newspaper, and sealed it up with fun pink zebra striped duct tape! I explained that they could take it and sit on it at the park or in the grass, and their bottoms would stay dry! Most of the girls were confused at first, but thought it would be nice once we completed it-- and sat on it right away!
The colored cones in the 2:00 class...

For snack, we had Ice Cream Cones-- several of the girls said it was the best snack ever! But then they liked the Boston Brown bread and the lemon tart too... One mom brought mini-cones, they were so cute! Each girl had two of those cones with ice cream in it. For the other class, the mom brought colored cones--pink, green and brown! I didn't even know they had such a thing! It was a snack that Molly and her friends had at camp after the Color war was done.

After snack, I had thought about trying to play Capture the Flag, but the weather was chilly since it is February. It had snowed that morning, so I decided not to play outside. I decided to play a game that might be played at camp-- the Alphabet game! I began the game with this sentence, and the girls all had to repeat it... "I am going to camp, and in my suitcase I am going to pack... an aardvark." Then the next girl had to add something with B. The next girl had to say the sentence, the A word, the B word and a C word of her choice (i.e., clothes.) We went around the room with this game and made it all the way to Z before class ended! It was a fun game, the girls helped each other and giggled some too! Our suitcase would have to have been huge!

Playing our Alphabet game...

It was a delightful class day! One of the girls told me, "You're the best teacher in the world... of this class!" HA! It made me chuckle the rest of the day!

We have only one more week of Molly left before we start to discuss JULIE!

Genesis 32:2
When Jacob saw them, he said, “This is the camp of God!” So he named that place Mahanaim.

Exodus 19:17
Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain.

Joshua 6:14
So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days.
