At last, a practical history project

Story of the World III, chapter 31 A Different Kind of Rebellion...the activity book suggests doing "factory work" by creating an assembly line.

We made our Christmas cards in assembly line fashion. I cut out the fabric triangles; VKid1 glued them to the cards; VKid2 colored trunks for each tree. I then made itsy bitsy little red ribbon bows; VKid1 glued bows to the top of trees; Vkid2 added stars in the background. I finished up by writing "Merry Christmas" in each one.

Now to address and stamp them all. There was much arguement over choice of Christmas stamp. The only one they could agree on was the Eid stamp, so that's what we got. I wonder how many people will even notice.
