Our craft was a rag doll filled with beans. I traced and sewed most of the doll at home. It looked like a brown puppet! The bottom end was left open, and they filled it with beans. They stitched the bottom end up with a needle and thread. We put doll clothes on her, and then sewed two blue eyes and a smile. I gave the girls a length of chunky black yarn for the hair. Some of the girls got it sewn on, and some didn't. You can find more detailed instructions on the clothes-- measurements, etc., on this blog post here.
Here is the Ida Bean doll template:
This is on a sheet of 8 1/2 X 11" paper.
Our snack was mock apple pie. I found the recipe online here. It was pretty good, and very interesting that it doesn't have any apples!
It was our last week of Addy. We all really enjoyed her story and the books. I'm sad to "leave" Addy. She's one of my favorites. In two weeks we begin Samantha! We have a week off for our homeschool group testing.
Let me know if you make these dolls, I'd love to hear about them!
