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.
...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...
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
“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.
