American Girl Club Week 5 & 6 – Kirsten 1854

March 4, 2010 at 9:21 am (Uncategorized)

For week 5 of Kirsten the girls quilted a pattern on a potholder. 

One of the mom’s made the potholders ahead of time and brought them to club.  Then the girls used brown paper to cut out a pattern and quilt on their pot holder.  Simple things like hearts, square, leaves, and flowers worked best.

For snack we had potato soup.  It was yummy! 

It was a simple but FUN week!

For week 6 we made bunny pin cushions.
This was really fun because it was the first sewing craft I have given to the girls that I did NO prep work.  When we did our first sewing project last year during Samantha the girls pretty much had no idea how to sew and the mom’s did most of the sewing.  Over time I have tried to continue to give them sewing projects (That are appropriate to each time period.) and get them to do a little more sewing each time.  They have gotten pretty good at sewing!  YAY!!! So for this project I just laid out the materials and let them have at it!  I didn’t even cut out the pieces for them!  I just put the pattern pieces on the table and they did it all themselves. It is very rewarding to see the progress the girls have made since we started American Girl Club!

Here is my daughter working on her bunny.

The girls working on their projects.

So that is it for Kirsten!  Next week we will be starting our study of Addy!

Happy Homeschooling,
