Shooting Star Felted Balls

On  Monday, we went to my sister’s house to kick off the begining of our Michaelmas week.   During circle time, Beth told the story of Archangel Michael, and taught us the song   A Boy’s Resolve  (found in the clump-a-dump and snickle-snack song book … by Johanne Russ)

After lunch it was time to make our felted balls to use for the shooting stars at our Michaelmas celebration.  We ran out of time to dye them together (had to pick up my other two girls from school) So we did ours that evening here at home.

We brought home lots of sunflower heads from Beth’s house to use.  I used the same method that Beth used in her post HERE using  sunflower petals and Tumeric.
