Got Books?

The first week in July we had another book club meeting. The girls were to bring books about America. Because it was the week of the 4th of July, I decided to do a patriotic theme. I let the girls look through the books and explain the ones they brought.
For our craft, we took glass bubbles and painted on them with paint pens. They looked great! First we painted the backs and after they were dry we painted the tops, but it wasn't necessary... they looked great with just the backs painted. We put them on magnets! The magnets had to be heavy duty ones, not the little ones, or they would not stay up. I also had them write letters to people serving in the military. The girls all decided to write to a family member that was a veteran.
It was a great day to reflect on our wonderful country and the freedoms we enjoy!
