Our American Girl Book Club always make a fun craft when they get together. They’ve made kitesrag dollsdreamcatchers and more, while talking about classic American Girl books.

But this time, they got a little messy.

This week, they met Josefina, a young girl who grew up in New Mexico while it was still under Mexican rule.

The girls also learned a little about Josefina’s culture by making guacamole. They mashed and mixed the avocado themselves.

When they were finished, they even had time to make God’s-Eyes crafts for themselves and maracas for their dolls.

Our American Girl Book Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month to discuss a different American Girl book and make a new craft.

If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then he or she can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on May 6 in the children’s section of our Main Branch on Mentor Avenue. The girls will be meeting Marie-Grace and Cecile.

You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

It looks like the girls enjoyed their craft.
