The Great American Teach In! (Digi Freebie at End)

I’m terribly late blogging this! But, late is better than never, can I get an Amen?!

Last month I was invited to speak to my oldest daughter’s kindergarten class during the Great American Teach In. For those of you unfamiliar with the program, the Great American Teach In is one school day where members of the community are asked to come in and discuss careers, hobbies, etc. with the students.

I chose to tell the kids about Quilling, which is a very, very old art. Since they’re kindergarteners, we didn’t delve into the history too much, but they did enjoy hearing that some of the first people to quill lived during the time of knights and dragons!

We made some quick projects together, so funny seeing the little ones trying to curl and shape the paper!

We made a flower, a heart, a carrot, and a cheeseburger! Way to go kids!

We also made a sheep and a snowman!

It’s been a while since I gave out a digi, and ’tis the season! These are from a set Guy drew a while back. Log Bunneh is one of my favorites, enjoy!!

    Hope you had fun teaching the little ones. Quilling is just one more thing on my ‘learn to do’ list. If a five year old can do it then I have a chance. Oh and thanks so much for the latest freebies. They are perfect for this time of year.

    Take care Colleen!

    Quilling! Love it! I used to do it about40 years ago when I was a little girl. I’ve always enjoyed it and even had a picture I made displayed in a local hobby shop! Glad to see someone passing it on.

    I did a bit of quilling years ago – may have to try my hand at it again. Thanks for the lovely digis.
