This craft is another one from Josefina's Craft Book. It is fairly easy, using an inexpensive corn broom from Wal-mart. I cut the broom apart, and the girls each used a small pile to tie into their own broom. We tied the whisk broom with a rubber band (which Josefina didn't have) and a piece of jute cord. I showed the girls how to fan out the broom for use. We discussed how they may have also used a broom like this for combing their hair too!
After our simple and easy craft, we had snack. The snack this week was fruit turnovers, you can find an easy recipe here. One of the moms told me that she quadrupled the recipe so there would be enough for 10-12 turnovers. She also brought lavender lemonade for snack-- yum! The girls loved the fruit turnovers, and one girl said, "I wish I could eat one every day!" :-D
“I will turn her into a place for owls and into swampland; I will sweep her with the broom of destruction,” declares the Lord Almighty.
Seek the Lord and live, or he will sweep through the tribes of Joseph like a fire; it will devour them, and Bethel will have no one to quench it.
