Little Hats, Big Hearts, Crafty Hooks

My students need crochet hooks and red yarn to learn to crochet and participate in the Big Hearts Little Hats service project through the American Heart Association.

My Students

My students have smiles that will light the room. They come to class excited to create and experiment. While some have access to art materials at home, most do not so my classroom is their studio. They bring their ideas, beliefs, and stories to share through their artwork and I love getting to share it with them. Every day there are moments of inspiration and excitement.

I appreciate and enjoy their excitement and energy even more knowing that for many, daily life outside of school can be a struggle.

My school has a high percentage of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch, and we have a least a few students who are currently homeless. That being said, you would never know that in our art studio.

My Project

I run a crochet club for 4th and 5th graders. I teach them to crochet and then we work together to make hats for the American Heart Association. The hats are then given out to babies born in February with information about heart disease in both adults and kids.

I am asking for your assistance so I can make sure every student who is interested can participate without worrying about paying for their hook and yarn.

We will use the hooks to learn to crochet, and students will keep them allowing them to continue their new hobby. The yarn will be turned into the hats. Last year we made over 50 hats. This year we hope to surpass that record.
