Little Flowers Girls' Club - Fortitude

I had to teach our Little Flowers Girls' Club lesson today.

The virtue was Fortitude and the flower that represented the virtue...the Hyacinth.

The author suggest building a Popsicle house to represent the virtue of Fortitude.

David built the one above as a sample for the girls to go by.

To be honest, I wasn't sure how 10 girls ranging in age from 5  to 9 years would do with this project.  I was thinking about limited time and how long it would take for the glue to dry before adding a roof.

David, being the wood working guy that he is, was a doll and spent last Sunday pre-fabricating the roofs for the houses.

He even made the "foundations" for the homes.

It was so sweet of him to help me out with this project!  The girls just had to build the walls and assemble.

This is our last official Little Flower meeting for the school year so Mabel and I wanted to make a special snack to bring.

I found this idea from Shower of Roses.

Cupcakes decorated as a Hyacinth.  Aren't they cute?!

Mabel had a blast.  We used the following products (from Michael's) to create the "artwork".

Our usual, second meeting of the month has been turned into a picnic and swim party for the girls.  They are so excited.  There were quite a few new babies born this year to our group, so we decided to make things easy and substitute the traditional tea party with a swimming party.

Speaking of swimming, our subdivision's pool-opening notice has not yet arrived.  We are normally swimming by now so the wait is killing them!

  1. Lovely cupcakes, lovely husband! Our last meeting is the May Crowning in a couple of weeks:) Many Mary Month of May blessings to you!

  2. The cupcakes are gorgeous! Kudos to your hubby for chipping in to help with the project. Thank God for wonderful husbands :)

  3. We're on fortitude later this month too! Cute cupcakes-I'd consider making them, but thankfully another mom is on lesson and snack duty this month.
    We have our mother-daughter luncheon in June and another mom offered to host. So grateful for that!


Thanks for stopping by!
