My 3rd graders worked so hard on the Barn Dance quilts I thought they deserved to try something new and something they might find exciting. Keeping with the textile and design theme I developed a lesson that allowed them to design their own stuffed figures based upon their personalities.
I had a bunch of colorful felt I picked up at EXCL last year that I had stored away. www.exclrecycles.org
All the materials used except for the stuffing were from EXCL! Awesome recycling project and the kids loved it!
