Now that our little Rose is already nearly 3 months old, it was time to resume our Little Flowers Girls’ Club meetings for this year. I can not believe how fast the time has passed! I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to pull it all together, but thanks to my mom who came over on Wednesday (to help around the house, bake cupcakes, and do a couple school subjects with the kids!!) and with a little cooperation from Rose (and the help of her Guardian Angel and St. Therese, I am SURE!) who slept most of the afternoon so I could finish getting everything ready, it all came together.
I included the memory verse for Wisdom, an image of St. Teresa Benedicta, the Come Holy Ghost prayer, images of an iris and a dove, and the prayer to St. Teresa Benedicta from the Little Flowers Virtues CD.
To simplify the preparation and planing for our group, all of this year’s crafts were purchased from Oriental Trading. For the virtue of Wisdom I thought having the girls make bookmarks would be fun and appropriate. We’d did need a little help from a couple moms and some needle nose pliers, but overall it was a simple craft and turned out super cute! Here is a picture of one of my girls finished bookmarks:
I had a hard time coming up with a snack for the virtue of Wisdom. I thought about purchasing this pan, baking a book shaped cake, and then decorating it with the memory verse for wisdom or perhaps a quote from this saint, but decided that might be a little more than I’d be able to pull off right now. So, I simplified that idea by decorating fig newtons to look like books and placing them on top of cupcakes. I thought they turned out cute!
My girls had a wonderful time and are already looking forward to our next meeting in just two weeks!
