Day #5 Crafts: Yarn Dolls & Programs / Picture Frames
Here is a great post with many pictures that explains how to make a yarn girl or boy. The only difference we had was that we used contrasting yarn for all of the tying off.
|That’s a lot of yarn!|
For the Program Picture Frames, you will need:
The dancers decorated the program/cards and taped their picture inside and handed them to their parents / guests as they arrived!
|Getting dressed and pinning on the beads to our vests|
|Lined up and ready to go!|
My camp director makes a brief introduction welcoming everyone and talks a little bit about what we’ve done that week and then the show begins!
|Smiling faces (and cameras) over here too!|
|Jumping for joy!|
The teachers made “lassos” out of crepe paper rubber-banded to a rhythm stick for our tap dance about Jessie the Yodeling cowgirl.
|Using our lassos|
After all of our tap dances (we do about a minute or two of 3-4 different songs – see our playlist here), we take a VERY short break and change our shoes. The girls decided the vests were too cumbersome, so we took them off too!

Afterwards there was much applause and smiles all around!
