Crafts by the Children

Look what a splendid job our classes did with the socks for snowman and the tiles for coasters. See my article on “Crafts for the Classroom” for the patterns.

The squatty snowmen my class did. Now the teacher in the picture, Ms. B decided
to make the snowman and change the snowmen a little, quite to the better. She used
black socks and cut them to make a hat. She use grapevine to glue on for the
arms, and a orange pipe cleaner for the nose. Now doesn’t she look proud.
Ms. B did a great job, hers is a class act for anyone to follow.


The tile my class did. Aren’t they creative?


The three little snowmen are from my class. Cute!

We are very proud teachers!

I am a novice writer and painter who loves to be creative. I love singing but can't sing without a hymnal, except for children's songs. I love to make up my own songs and love the old hymns. I love to garden and got that love from my Mom and Dad who taught be everything I know from planting to harvesting to canning. I'm happy gardening, walking with my pug, JD Sir Winston Churchill, painting, and crafting. I love to spend Saturday's sitting in my rocker going through a bible study. I love working with elementary school aged children and seeing them use their creative gifts. I have taught Sunday school for a number of years and taught in the public schools for 18 years. I might say I'm retired but I spend most of my time subbing and enjoy it immensely. The kids spark my own creativeness.

  1. Beautiful, great artist in your class Miss O and Miss B!!!!!

    Oh, Miss B, I love your sweater and especially the color. I could sure use it as Stacie made me a bracelet and earrings for Christmas that has that color and gold and it sure would look smashing together. (Don’t tell Santa that I opened my gift early 🙂

    1. I understand Stacie also knits, besides making breautiful jewelry. Do you think Stacie you could send me a pattern for a simple hat to knit for a mutual friend we have?

      1. Sorry Rena…There is a mistake. I do just about every craft under the sun, but not Knitting. I do have a friend who knits. I’ll check with her and get back to you.

      2. Jersey I can knit scarves but my friend needs a hat. Can you give me some simple directs. Of course this one I’ll have to add a lot of glamour as my friend is glamorous. Thanks!

      3. What I saw in my head (God gives me pictures) was like a hat with a two to three inch band with the mohair sticking out so thick it looked like fur. I only knit so if you have seen a pattern like that let me know. Thanks so much!!!

      4. Speaking of knitting and mohair…I saw Sara wearing a beautiful scarf made with mohair that Rena knit for her. Good job Rena!

      5. I THINK I HAVE THE HAT FOR YOU. I WILL SEND IT WHEN I FIND THE PATTERN. I HAVE YARN TOO(MOHAIR) LET ME KNOW WHAT COLOR? IF I HAVE WHAT YOU WANT ILL SEND IT TO YOU. MERRY CHRISTMAS

      6. Thank you so much. I’ll look forward to receiving the pattern. I do have the yarn. It matches the scarf which I already gave. THANKS!!!

  2. Wow! What gorgeous tiles and precious snowmen! You really have a great group of artisans Rena…both teachers and students. The tiles are each so unique and colorful. And great job on the black hat snowman Mrs. B…I love it!
