Birthday Party!

28 Apr

We organized another fun-filled birthday party this past weekend!

Before a party we get all set up.

Before any party, we make sure all the pieces necessary for the project and the tools needed are all set up and ready to go.

Once the guests arrive, they pick their fabrics and get started right away.  Here they are cutting out and attaching the eyes.

So Cute!

I don’t know how they do it, but each student manages to pick the perfect eyes to go with their owl.

Knitting and Sewing continues!

28 Jan

Last week we mixed things up a bit in knitting.  I find that sometimes, especially on warm, sunny days, the kids get restless about half way through class and need a bit of a break.  Knitting for an hour and a half is hard work!

Mr. Smiley!

Mr. Smiley!

Sorry for the blurry photo.  Sometimes it’s hard to photograph someone’s finished project as it is waved in front of the camera – the kids are just so excited about their creations, they can’t hold still!  This student made a pom-pom last week and turned it into a smiley pom-pom this week, which promptly retained the name of “Mr. Smiley”.  So cute!

The Marble Game.

The Marble Game.

About half way through class time, the students were getting a little bit restless so we took a small break and played “The Marble Game”.

Playing.

Playing.

First, I  hand each student a paper towel tube that has been cut in half.  Then I show them a marble and explain the rules of the game.  The object of this game is to work together and keep the marble rolling from person to person without dropping it.IMG_3958

Once the marble has passed from your tube to the next person’s tube, you run from the start of the line to the end and get ready to catch the marble again.  These students had a great time and managed the all-time record of four rounds!

Back to knitting.

Then it was back to their knitting!
