3 Crochet Hooks & 50 Children
Wednesday, 6 November 2013 | Whistlebare
Last week I was asked if I would contribute to our local first school's Poppy Making Day. In essence I needed to teach fifty 5 - 9 year olds to crochet in an hour and a half! Knowing my limitations as a teacher I decided that sewing the black button in the middle was probably as much as I could expect the children to achieve. So I went along armed with fifty pre-crocheted poppies, black buttons and the beginnings of a red strip of crochet. Mercifully, Mrs Bradbury the school's lovely caretaker, was also there to impart her skills and encourage the children.
