American Girl Club - Molly Week 2

For week 2 of Molly we started out with the flag salute and singing America The Beautiful.  Then I read the girls the War Message for Children on page 67 in book 2.

Then we had our book discussion and got ready for our craft.  Our craft this week was a little different than anything we have done before.  This week in the book Molly and her classmates competed in a Lend-A-Hand Contest.  Molly's group ended up knitting squares and putting them together to make a blanket to donate.  So we did the modern day version of this and made polar fleece blankets to donate! 

Here are a few of the girls working on a blanket.These are made from kits I bought at JoAnn's.  (The directions are included.)

Here are our finished blankets.

Our blankets were made to be donated to Project Linus.

For snack we had Boston Brown Bread with Raisins.

I also read to the girls from our Welcome to Molly's World book. 

And that was night 2 for Molly!

Happy Homeschooling,
