We held a craft week for the last week of my Brimfield session, and it was so much fun. It was our principal's idea and really turned out to be a fun and positive experience. The students who wanted to participate came to school early everyday for a week and we made simple crafts that we could give to others to show our love and appreciation for them. The kids loved it and were excited to come in each day to see who we would be making crafts for that morning. Here is a run down of the super fun week:
Monday: We made paper chains for the Brimfield Fire Department. The kids wrote messages to the fire fighters on each link. They wrote things like, "Thank you for coming to my house when we needed you", "Thank you for protecting us", "I like your cool truck", etc.
Tuesday: We made placements for Brimfield Altercare (assisted living). The kids were excited to brighten the days of the folks at Altercare!
Wednesday: We made tissue paper flowers for the Brimfield Police Deptartment and put them together to make a really beautiful bouquet. The police department has a great presence in our schools and we were even able to hand deliver our bouquet to the chief!
Friday: The kids were so excited to get to make a craft that they actually got to take home! We made these beach-inspired photo frames for them to take home to their parents! We have had the world's coldest and snowiest winter, so these pictures were really fun!
