The 5th grade kids made fleece hats to send to The Children's Home in Peoria. The kids decided to not exchange gifts with each other. Instead we made the fleece hats and then each 5th grader spent the money they would have spend on a grab bag gift, and brought in a care bag to put in their hats for the Children's home kids. The care bags had combs, shampoo, soap, deodorant and many more things.

We started with a math activity of finding the circumfirance of their heads and then the cutting and sewing began. We had tons of fun!!

Special Thanks to Jennifer and Emily Briney for letting us use their sewing machine and to Patty VanVoorhis for donating her fleece supply and 3 sewing machines.

Thanks,
Vicki Mummert
