SPRING Seasons of Joy Online Updates


Websites come and websites go, and ten years later, I realize that some of the websites included in my Seasons of Joy curriculum may no longer be functioning. And spring is coming soon, I promise! Here are some updated links to the Spring seasonal guide.

p. 54 “Online bonus material”
The link to making a bubble wand no longer works. Try these links instead!
* Make large and small bubble wands.* A do-it-yourself GIANT bubble wand from sticks and string.
*Invent all kinds of bubble wands from kitchen materials.

p. 62 “Online bonus material”
The link for a knitted chicks and felted nest no longer exists. Instead, try these.
* Knit a nest and a chick.
* Knit a silly little chick in an egg from this free pattern.
* Check out this video on how to needle felt a chick.
* And finally, here is a no-knit nest tutorial.

p. 72 “Online bonus material”
The crocheted duck pattern seems to have been reassigned to  this link and is classified as level easy for beginner crocheters.

p. 80 “Online bonus material”
The link for making bubble tea seems super spammy. Try these recipes instead!

And finally, to update the “Resources” section. Sadly, so many small mama-run businesses have come and gone, it’s easier to just completely re-do the page. If you know of any other great resources, feel free to let me know!
