American Girl class: Felicity#2 Week 4

We had a great Felicity class this week!

After we discussed Happy Birthday, Felicity!, we made clothespin dolls! The girls really enjoyed this craft, and it took longer than I thought it would. I found directions online here and used them relatively closely. I gave the girls each two round-head clothespins, and three pieces of fabric- one for the girls' dress, and two for the boy's shirt & pants. They colored the faces, hair and shoes with Sharpie markers. Before class, my husband helped me drill a 1/8" hole under the "neck" of the clothespin, so we could put a 3 1/2" piece of pipe cleaner in it for the arms. It worked great! Then the girls could turn up the ends for the dolls' hands. All of the little dolls turned out so cute!

I forgot my camera this week, but the moms took some pictures and sent them to me... Thanks!

Working on their dolls...

We had Colonial Apple Pie for snack. I found the recipe online Here. The girls really liked it!

We also worked more on our cross-stitch bookmarks in our extra time, it was only for the last 15-20 minutes of the class (in the 2:00 class). They are getting better at their stitching and I am loving seeing the girls work at it!

We only have two more weeks left in our class- it's going by so quickly! It's been lots of fun! Next week will be quill pens... I think!
