American Girl: Molly week #5 (time #2)

We had a fun class in American Girls this week! In our book, Molly Saves the Day, (book 5 in the series) Molly and her friends go to Summer Camp. We discussed our book and then we made craft- something that Molly might have made at camp-- a sit-upon!

 Silly girl put it on her head before she finished it up! I had a few pieces of zebra striped vinyl that we used too...

For this craft, I gave each girl a 26" square of vinyl with flannel backing. I found some fun patriotic vinyl at Jo-Anns crafts. The girls folded their square around a few sections of newspaper, and sealed it up with patriotic duct tape! I explained that they could take it and sit on it at the park or in the grass, and their bottoms would stay dry! Most of the girls were confused at first, but thought it was nice once we completed it-- and sat on it right away!

For snack, we had Vanilla Ice Cream in plain cones-- several of the girls said it was the best snack ever!  It was a snack that Molly and her friends had at camp after the Color war was done.

After snack, I had thought about trying to play Capture the Flag, but the weather was chilly since it is February. It had snowed that morning, so I decided not to play outside. I brought a flag and we recited the pledge of Allegiance. We talked about what the words in the pledge mean (i.e., allegiance, indivisible, liberty, justice) after the recitation. I also read about page out of Welcome to Molly's World about D-Day and the army making floating bridges like they did in the Molly book.

One girl put her sit-upon on her doll as a blanket! ; - D
We have only one more week of Molly left before we start to discuss JULIE!

Genesis 32:2
When Jacob saw them, he said, “This is the camp of God!” So he named that place Mahanaim.

Exodus 19:17
Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain.

Joshua 6:14
So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days.
