American Girl class: Samantha week 2 (time #2)

We had another great class this week in American Girls! We talked about the book, Samantha Learns a Lesson, the 2nd book in the Samantha series. We talked about exercise, practiced the curtsy, and played charades (at the end of class when we had a few minutes left...) I liked these curtsy directions and these charade instructions. Some of the girls had not played charades before, or for a long time!

We made glass paperweights for craft. In the early 1900's the terrarium was a popular thing, so we made our own mini-terrarium. This idea is from Samantha's Craft Book. We used a baby food jar, cut a piece of cardstock for the bottom of the jar and a piece of felt to cover that. The girls picked out artificial flowers and a seashell to put inside. We glued the felt onto the jar opening after everything was where they wanted it to be. Then we glued a 7" piece of red cord around the edge. They turned out cute!

For snack, we had carrot soup. The girls all tried it, but only a few of them liked it. You can find the recipe here.

 Cutting card stock and felt...

 Arranging flowers...
 Eating snack...

...and playing charades! It was another satisfying class. I missed the girls over spring break!
Only four more weeks left of Samantha! Next week we will practice some of the exercises mentioned in this book!

A few verses about flowers...
Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”

Matthew 6:28
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.

Luke 12:27
“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
