American Girl class: Kirsten week 1 (time #2)

We began week ONE of learning about Kirsten this week! After reviewing Meet Kirsten, we began our craft this week, which was a yarn doll. This craft was kind of in-depth, so it took a bit of time. You can read the supplies list and directions HERE of how I cut the yarn to give to the girls. We had a tough time untangling the yarn, some girls had more tangles than others. 

After we got the body done, I helped most of them clip the bottom to look like a skirt and wrap yarn around to make the head. A lot of the girls got the arms braided (we helped the younger ones) and put in the doll. Most of the girls did not get their yellow yarn hair braided. They needed to finish them at home. I forgot to pass out the pink felt pieces for the mouth and the blue beads for the eyeballs, mostly in the first class. I hope the girls were able to sew the hair, eyes and felt on the doll with a needle and thread. I liked seeing the girls work together on them!

It was an all-hands-busy kind of craft, so I didn't get many pictures...
 Here is the 2:00 class winding their white yarn around the cardboard to make the doll's body...
 Here is what the girls took home... most of them. My daughter has been braiding her hair for a while last night and this morning!


The snack this week was Swedish Meatballs. The girls liked them!

We did not begin their ongoing craft of braided rugs... the day was just too busy. We will probably start it next week. This class gave them practice in braiding! We 
will have more fun working on Kirsten book two next week!



Exodus 28:22
“For the breastpiece make braided chains of pure gold, like a rope.

Judges 16:19
After putting Samson to sleep on her (Delilah's) lap, she called for someone to shave off the seven braids of his hair, and so began to subdue him. And his strength left him.

1 Timothy 2:9
I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes...
