Square Circle Forum

This month we are all about whimsy, fun stuff, kid-friendly squares.

 

Designs can be simple - the way a child would draw them.

 

Do you remember when you were 4, or 5 or 6? What fascinated you?

 

Even if that was a long time ago for some of us, certain things never change. No matter what the decade, children everywhere seem to be attracted to similar things.

 

COLOUR    

- the brighter the better. Think of a box of crayons and salute the

Year of the Plain Jane

with a stack of bright yellows, reds, blues and greens.

 

READING AND COUNTING

    Number squares with counting dots, picture squares with simple words or alphabet letters

 

ANIMALS 

Kids love to learn about nature and our children in S.A. probably would love to see some African animal squares, or dogs, cats etc.

 

THINGS THAT GO

Always fun - cars, trucks, airplanes, rockets, bikes

 

MY COUNTRY

Squares that show the colours of the S.A. flag - black, white. yellow, green, blue, red. Even very young children recognize their flag.

(Reminder - flag-coloured squares will arrive in S.A. in time to be included in blankets distributed on Mandela Day, July 18)

If including Mandela Day squares in a parcel with other squares,  please write "Think Like a Kid" on the outside of the parcel so the volunteers will watch for them and set them aside. 

 

TOYS

- balls, dolls, teddy bears

 

HAVE FUN WITH THIS THEME - TURN BACK THE CLOCK AND    THINK LIKE KID!!!!

 

The "featured product of the month" in the KasShop for February is Learning Posters. They are a KASbargain at 2 for $5US!

As Pam mentioned in KasSnippets , these posters enhance the children’s environment and provide important stimulation to developing minds.

If you would like to send some posters as part of your participation in this month’s theme please visit the KasShop  HERE  and let us know in the discussion. It would be great if we could provide enough posters for Ronda to leave a few to brighten the creches she visits.

WOOF!

These alphabet letters and numbers are on ravelry.com. via moogly. They are free.  She has recently added the lower case letters and punctuation.  I think they are fun to use.  I started Believe, (a triple square) in December for a Christmas thought, but just now have gotten around to finishing it. 

Here's your square, Christine.  Someone will be very excited to find this one in his blanket!

February Theme - Think Like A Kid

"Piggers" is the nickname of our little pig Bandit.

Thank you, Trish.  Great shapes for little fingers to trace in a wonderfully bright colour to brighten up a blanket! xo

Toy Train

Two teddy bears

"Going"

This is "going".  "Coming" is in progress.  LOL!!

my version of a box of crayons

Hello!
