Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Soft -- Kids Unplugged

It took us a while to have time for this project at UnplugYourKids, but we made fleece hats (yes, it is still hot here, but we love these hats and you can't have too many of them!). The girls use them for swimming. First, you cut a piece of fleece 18 x 20 inches.

Fold up 1-2 inches on the 18 inch side and sew seam.

Place right sides together

and sew seam from hemmed side up 10-11 inches. You should have a long cylindrical sewn piece.

Cut the fleece in strips from the open end to the top of the hemmed side (these will be your "bun").

Turn it inside out. Take two strips and wrap them around the others and then tie them together.

Voila! You have a soft warm hat.
