Read, Paint, Cook Unit Study About Quilts for Kidswith The Build Your Masterpiece Class. Quilting Projects included can be enjoyed by a variety of ages, from PreK to Grade 12 plus parents too! Perfect for unschooling, and family-style learning.
After creating two different lessons about Quilts in our Masterpiece Alphabet and Early Years Classics elementary programs for kids, I was asked to create a separate and unique unit study about Quilts for older children and parents to enjoy and I was definitely up to the task! I have really fallen in love with quilts since diving even deeper to create this art study and I hope you and your kids enjoy it.
