This week in our American Girl class, we discussed Happy New Year, Julie!, the third book in the Julie series. After we reviewed the book, we discussed the Chinese New Year that Julie shared with Ivy. I was bummed because I forgot my phone in the car during the first class, so I didn't get any pictures! OOPS! I did get some of the 2:00 class though... Sorry!
I'm so thankful for my mom helpers in each class and their patience! I couldn't do some crafts without their extra help! We talked about how we made God's eyes too when we were kids! Since it is not Christmas time, we told the girls they could hang them in their bedroom, a window or give them as a gift!
We also made Red Envelopes out of Origami paper. I used directions found online here. I printed money on my home printer so they could each have a "dollar" to put inside the envelope just like Ivy in our book. I found the printable money here.
Folding the envelopes... the girls agreed that this origami folding was much easier than the origami crane we made a few weeks ago!
These are my fortunes from my cookies... not so much fortunes as truths or idioms...
This is my example of a god's eye. The girls' crafts all turned out well!
It was another fun class, only three more weeks of Julie left! But we have NO class next week, for Spring Break!
