The kids are officially out for summer. I still have one more teacher workday, but graduation was yesterday. Even though I’m incredibly excited to get this summer started, I will miss the kids. We had a particularly amazing group this year, and it’s sad to see them go.
In honor of the end of the school year, I thought I’d share a cute crafty project the kids just finished. It has become somewhat of an annual tradition for the 7th graders to make quilts to send to Project Linus. The blankets are then sent to children in the hospital.
Although we helped them get started, rethread the machines, and generally put out fires, the kids did pretty much everything on their own. Yes, 64 7th graders with sewing machines. Chaos at its finest.
This year, we were totally blown away with the adorable quilts that the kids made.
Now, onto my next point: if they can do it, so can you. Making a quilt may seem daunting, but there are some really simple, beautiful ways to start. Plus, I know from experience that it makes the perfect summer project!
We sure will miss them, but we’re looking forward to meeting a new group in August!
