We had another great Molly class this week! We read Happy Birthday, Molly! (book 4 in the Molly series) for class and talked about it. We also discussed birthdays in 1940, and a blackout drill.
After we discussed the book, we made princess crowns. I gave each girl a 12 X 20" piece of foam, and gave them tracers which I found here. I printed the template and traced them onto card stock. Each girl traced the template two times (back to back) to make a crown. I also gave them jewels and glue to decorate the crowns. Then I punched two small holes in the bottom corners, and gave them a 12-15" piece of 1/2" inch piece of elastic. They put the elastic through the holes and tied a knot. If the elastic was too long, they could trim it down a little.
Here is the recipe for lemon tart:
¾ cup butter, room temp
½ cup white sugar
½ tsp vanilla
1 ¾ c flour
1. Combine butter, ½ cup sugar, vanilla and salt in mixer. Add flour to make smooth dough. Press into 9” pan.
2. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
3. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
1 ½ cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 Tbsp lemon zest
½ cup fresh lemon juice
½ cup flour
1 tsp powdered sugar
- Whisk sugar, eggs, zest, juice and ½ cup flour until smooth. Pour lemon filling into crust.
- Cover edges to prevent burning.
- Bake tart until set, about 20 minutes.
- Cool completely and dust with powdered sugar.
Our snack mom had a hard time making the crusts, so she bought cookies and we put the lemon filling on the top. It was delicious! All of the girls loved it!
The 2:00 class...
Tracing and decorating their crowns...
Love seeing girls help each other during craft!
After snack, I read a story from the Welcome to Molly's World book.
It was another delightful class day!
...who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.
