American Girl class: Kit week 4 (time #2)

After we reviewed our fourth Kit book, Happy Birthday, Kit, we discussed penny pinching and what Kit's birthday party looked like. For our craft, we made paper lanterns, paper hats, and tissue paper flowers. The girls seemed to like making these crafts just from paper. I found directions for the paper lanterns here. Directions for the newspaper sailor hats were found here. Directions for the tissue paper flowers were found here
 The crafts were all pretty simple and easy, only requiring construction paper, staples, a hole punch and yarn. It was pretty easy to complete the three crafts in our one hour of class time. I also read three pages from Welcome to Kit's World. The girls liked the picture of the kite made with newspaper!

Making newspaper hats...

 Several of the girls put them on their heads like hats! Sillies!

  You can see the completed lanterns on the table, and the girls were folding their tissue paper for the flowers.
 For snack we had Tea sandwiches and depression cake. Tea sandwiches were fancy little sandwiches filled with ham, cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes. The crusts were cut off. Depression cake is a cake with no eggs. We found a good recipe here.
 The 2:00 class cutting their lanterns...
 This girl said the hat looked like a pirate hat, so this is her pirate...
 Having snack... most of the girls liked the cake, but not all of them!

 The girls folded the piece of tissue paper in half before stapling it. Most of the girls put them into a circle, so that it was a stand-alone flower with no stem. I did give them a piece of yarn to hang the lantern and another piece to hang the flower.

It was another wonderful class day, it's hard to believe we only have two weeks left! We are off next week for Thanksgiving break!

Proverbs 13:11
Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.

Matthew 6:24
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Hebrews 13:5
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
