What a fun year teaching early literature at our Co-op! This week I read them a personal favorite - The Quiltmaker's Gift.
I wanted to have them make quilts. But, that takes a bit longer than our hour...
After some thought, I came up with a way we could work with real fabric (I didn't want to do paper quilts). I found these precut fabric shapes on clearance at Target. I used fusible "Wonder Under". I ironed it on, cut the shapes out and they were ready for my kiddos to place on the fabric. All we had to do was peel off the paper, position and iron them on!
I was so impressed... they were able to use their own creativity to create their very own, fabric quilt in just a short while!
