Back In December I volunteered in my daughters class at school to work on a special project with the kids. I have long been a fan of another blog called The Toy Society and decided to do something similar with 23 third graders!
The kids had a working session with a local animator and then drew out a pattern to make their own softies! I came to school armed with fleece and a sewing machine & set-up shop in the back of the room!
Over the course of 3 weeks we worked together to create softies designed by each child. They wrote an introduction to their softie and then a note was enclosed with each one to be left at a drop spot with the softie as they do in The Toy Society.
the kids were So excited to work on this project and I loved the chance to do something creative with them. Most of them have dropped their softies by now & we are just waiting to see when and who finds them!
