Make A Pioneer Rag Doll
suggested grades completed: 2-5
dates and times: June 17, 10-11am
Laura Ingalls Wilders' "Little House on the Prairie" books teach us about daily life as a pioneer in the 1870s. Join us as we create a boy or girl rag doll from that time using cloth and yarn. I will show you how to clothe the doll with a traditional apron and scarf or a more modern superhero cape!
Taught by Kristin Meyer, LPS Paraeducator and Gifted Mentor
