For the state fair:
1. Make a cookie in the shape of your state.
The shape was so basic, I made a (thin) cake. Could there be a more simple shape than this? Try making Rhode Island as a cookie.
2. Dress up as someone related to your state.
Bailey chose a pioneer.
dress: granny made it (for me when I needed a costume) when I was Bailey's age.
bonnet and petticoat: Nana made for the pioneer trek she and Kellie WALKED. They followed a part of the actual route the pioneers did. It was super cool to wear something that had special meaning. Special thanks to grandmas!
We went to visit Bailey @ the 4th grade state fair. it was fun to see what she had done on her poster.
i must admit i was ready to see it. the 4th grade team requested that we as parents let our child do the entire project on their own. as a result, 99% of it was finished during school.
Great job, girl!
