I n preparation for the class, I put vinyl tablecloths on the tables. I was glad I did, it made for easier clean-up. I also had cups of water for the girls to dip their fingers in, and knives for them to cut with. The girls mostly liked the craft. Some of the pots got a little wobbly toward the top, but we worked on reinforcing them. The girls took them home and they should dry in a few days. They can use them to keep earrings or something small in!
For snack this week, we had hot mint tea and sweet Biscochitos cookies. You can find the recipe here. One of the moms made them without cookie cutters and the other used cookie cutters. They were delicious! Josefina had these cookies and hot mint tea with her Tia Magdelena in the book we read.
How the precious children of Zion, once worth their weight in gold, are now considered as pots of clay, the work of a potter’s hands!
Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?
