American Girls: Kirsten Week 5 (Time #2)

We had another wonderful class this week of American Girls! We discussed the book, Kirsten Saves the Day!, which is book 5 in the series. We talked about bees and honey, 

The sample potholder that I made...
For craft, we made Quilted Potholders. One of the amazing moms volunteered to make all 18 potholders! I enjoy sewing, but it was SO nice to not need to stress over that big project! The potholders were blank in the middle, so the girls sewed a design in the middle of the potholder. I found flower, heart and star templates to trace from the internet, herehere and here. A few girls made their own designs, but I warned them not to be too complicated!

We had potato soup for snack. Most of the girls liked it a lot! The recipe can be found here.

We did not work on our braided rugs... I accidentally left all of the supplies at home... OOPS! We will be working on them and sewing them together next week in class. I can hardly believe the semester is almost over!
