I went to Joann's today and bought some fleece for the family to make blankets for Project Linus. It's a project I've been wanting us to do anyway, so when I found out it was one of the organizations offering free Disney tickets for volunteering, I figured this was a good time to do it!
Lydia picked out a really cute Strawberry Shortcake fleece for her blanket, then since the other kids didn't think a trip to Joann's sounded like a fun way to spend their day off of school, we picked out everyone else's too. Arminda will be making a zebra blanet, Corey a dinosaur, Brian a hunting dogs blanket and Lydia picked out a cute golf fleece for me to make something with.
It was so much fun picking out things we thought other kids would like. Lydia put a lot of thought into it, and we talked about how nice it will be for the kids to be able to cuddle up in the blankets we made. I was glad that Lydia saw that the free tickets were really secondary to helping out someone else. (although, the free tickets are a very nice bonus!)
I will post some pictures when we get them made.
