After we discussed the book, Surprise for Caroline (book 3 in the series), we began our craft. We also discussed ice skating and hoop races.
So far in our class, we've made 6 kinds of dolls-- clothespin, corn husk, yarn, bean, paper, and nesting dolls. This week we added a new one! The craft this week was handkerchief dolls. I found the directions to make them here.
They turned out really cute! I told the girls NOT to draw a face on it with markers. If they wanted, at home they could stitch eyes and mouth on the doll.
They were a hit-- so pretty!
1 Chronicles 22:15-16
You have many workers: stonecutters, masons and carpenters, as well as those skilled in every kind of work in gold and silver, bronze and iron—craftsmen beyond number. Now begin the work, and the Lord be with you.”
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”;
2 Corinthians 12:16
Be that as it may, I have not been a burden to you. Yet, crafty fellow that I am, I caught you by trickery!
