What about teddy bears

My mom made them with her kindergarten class and you can simply make them more elaborate for the older girls

For the kindergarten level you can just use two pieces of fabric and then sew them together and stuff them..then you personalize them as the girl's mom with markers and paint

In the case of this project you might get the older girls to help the younger one's (like temporary troup leaders) they might enjoy feeling responsible for the younger girls..I know in Grade 8 I enjoyed being an "older buddy" for a grade 1 kid

Just a thought

P.S kudos on the scouting

For a kind of "stained-glass" looking vase, you need an old jar, a bunch of different coloured tissue paper, and some watered down glue (I think half-and-half, but you might want to experiment a bit first). Rip the coloured tissue paper into small pieces then hold a piece onto the jar and paint over it with the glue to hold it on. Just continue with random colours until the jar is covered. The good thing about this is that if you use white glue it's washable, so it's easy to clean up the mess after. I remember making one of these for mother's day a while back, no later than grade 3.
And I second the idea of letting the older girls help the younger ones. Maybe get the younger ones to do this and think of something more challenging for the older ones. Although, it could get interesting if you made pictures with the pieces of tissue paper.... hmm... I might have to try this tomorrow!  Cheesy

  Instead of etching cream there is Spray paint for glass. I used it to make this snowman out of a fish bowl.


  You get that frosted look without the danger of taking your skin off

  The little kids could make bath salts, by using Epsom Salt, some dried flowers if you like, and some EO

    Talk to the dad's and get some pictures of mom and the kids, and modge podge the pictures to a shoe box for a nice gift box/ memory box

  Have the little ones make up a coupon book (Free Hug, Clean up Room, etc)

  Make necklaces/bracelets out of pony beads,

  Make Key chain out of beads and a picture for mom

   Marble magnets (many many posts on here about that)


Love your ememies..... It will drive them nuts!
