We had a great class this week learning about Addy. After we discussed our book, Addy Learns a Lesson, we started our craft. The craft this week was a felt wall hanging, that the girls appliquéd pieces on. They each got one piece of 9 X 11" blue felt, and then they each got 1/4 piece of yellow, green and red. I gave them tracers of stars, hearts and a crown.
The girls went right to work and took almost the whole hour to finish their felt pieces. Some of them didn't finish them. I hope they could finish them at home!
We took a break during the craft time to eat our snack. Snack this week was black-eyed peas and buttermilk biscuits. A lot of the girls liked the "peas", I was surprised! There were a few that didn't eat it all, but at least tried a bite. I tried them too, and I kinda liked them! You can find the recipe for the peas here. This article also says that black-eyed peas are not a pea, but a bean. It's kind of interesting... Here is a recipe for buttermilk biscuits, but I don't think the mom that made our snack this week used this recipe, these are good "Southern" biscuits.
I didn't get any photos of any completed ones, it was just busy at the end! We did look in Addy's World book at the quilt that was appliquéd, it was pretty detailed with different Bible scenes on it!
Next week we will read Addy's Christmas story, called Addy's Surprise, and I'll blog about that one later! It's been a fun semester so far!
2 Samuel 17:27-29
When David came to Mahanaim, Shobi son of Nahash from Rabbah of the Ammonites, and Makir son of Ammiel from Lo Debar, and Barzillai the Gileadite from Rogelim brought bedding and bowls and articles of pottery. They also brought wheat and barley, flour and roasted grain, beans and lentils, honey and curds, sheep, and cheese from cows’ milk for David and his people to eat. For they said, “The people have become exhausted and hungry and thirsty in the wilderness.”
