American Girl Club Week 3 – Kirsten 1854

January 28, 2010 at 9:31 am (Uncategorized)

Wow, it’s hard to believe we are already half way through Kirsten!  But, this was week 3!

The book we read this week was the Christmas book.  So I thought it would be fun for our craft to be something a pioneer child would have gotten for Christmas.  So we made a Chromatrope Toy.

To make this I printed THIS PATTERN on card stock.  Two circles for each girl.  Each girl will also need a piece of cardboard to put in the middle of her two colored pieces of card stock.  (I cut up a pizza box.) Once they have their 3 layers glue sticked together you will use a nail to poke two holes in the middle.  This is the hardest part.  You need to get them centered like it is a button hole.  I made one that worked well and then used that one as a template to mark all the others.  (I tried to mark them on the pattern but couldn’t get them in the right place on the computer screen.  So sorry.) Then you need a piece of yarn (about 2 1/2 feet long) and a yarn needle.  Put the yarn through the holes, tie into a loop and start spinning!

Learning to spin!

We also did our Geography Notebook pages for Minnesota this week for Kirsten.
Here is the link to the pages the girls filled out. 

For snack we had Skansk Grot (Swedish Rice Porridge) This was YUMMY!  Of all the snacks we have had at American Girl Club this was probably my favorite.  I will be making this in the future!

So that was night three.  After the girls had the Skansk Grot they worked on their rag rugs some more.  They are coming along nicely!

Happy Homeschooling,
