The next day the rest of the class had their turn to make the trees, assisted by the group that had worked with me. They were so proud that they were able to help their classmates.
Then this second one was very easy for them:
By this point most of them were able to sew independently. The best part for me was when I laid out some assorted felt (purchased at Michaels Craft Store last year) and they made their own designs. Here are just a few:
I can't tell you how proud they were that they had learned how to sew. Many of them told me they went home and showed their parents their new skills. So thank you to Color 'n Cream for the inspiration!
We also had fun making these trees...I wish I had a group picture of them all. Just using construction paper, marker and glitter glue...you can't go wrong!
