|Girls can learn to make crafts and toys in new American Girl© Molly program on Jan. 26|
Girls ages eight to 12 will learn to make practical crafts and toys from American Girl© character Molly McIntire through a new program being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
The American Girl Collection involves engaging stories about girls living at important times in the past which bring history to life for grade-school girls. Participants explore what life was like during the times of these characters.
American Girl© Molly is the name of this new class. Participants will hear the story of Molly McIntire, who grew up during World War II and who wants the war to be over so her father can come home. Children like Molly learned to make practical gifts and toys with items they found around the house. Participants will learn to make a scrap paper jar, a Scottie dog, and a patriotic pinwheel.
