B is for Bean

November 8, 2012

For B week, the girls made a frame of beans for their big letter “B”s to be glued into.  Here are pictures of Charlotte and Veronica working on them.  Of course, I did not get pictures of the finished work.

I know we did a lot of other B things, but I can’t recall any at the moment.  We were going to do B is for Blanket, but didn’t make it that week.  Luckily the blankets had Cinderella on them, so they fit into C week nicely, which is still going on after 3 weeks, but that is another story!

Kevin’s Project for the ABCs

November 8, 2012

When we started the Alphabet Path, I asked one of our resident artists if he would like a project to work on.  He accepted and has started working on little peg people saints.  For the Confirmation at our parish he also made little peg saints for all the confirmandi.  These are a few of the beginning pictures.  Kevin has done several more, but the pictures are not on my computer.



St. George, St. Francis, St. Dominic Savio, St. Charles Borremeo, St. Bernard, little Mary to go with St. Anne, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton hiding behind St. Anne, and St. Helen.

A is for Apple Pie

November 8, 2012

A few weeks ago we started the Aphabet Path.  This is now several years old and we did this a while ago with MaryEllen and Charlotte.  Now it is Veronica’s turn.  This time it is more in-depth, as I’m taking ideas from several websites.  One of the hits from last time was making apple pie, making the crust with the A cookie cutter.  We did this once again.

Other things we did were read about Johnny Appleseed, made paper Angels, read about and drew St. Ann pictures and Mrs. Applebee pictures.  Hopefully we’ll take more pictures of other weeks’ work.

The original idea for this comes from Elizabeth Foss and company and can be found at the Serendipity website.  More ideas can be found at Lacy’s Catholic Icing in the preschool section.  We have also used many of Jessica‘s ideas, as she has a whole section for Along the Alphabet path.  A great big THANK YOU goes out to all who have added and shared their ideas!
