Everyone has been deeply affected by the tragedy that took place a week ago in Newtown, CT. All of us at Suede Sofa were teachers prior to turning in our plan books for diapers and mommy blogging. I was a 1st grade teacher, Lara was a music teacher, and Robynn was a science teacher and school counselor. Now being stay-at-home moms we felt compelled to do something for the children of Newtown, CT who attended Sandy Hook Elementary School the day of that senseless act that stole the lives of 20 children whose ages are similar to that of our own.
The following letter explains a simple snowflake project that you can do with your children or grandchildren to send to the Newtown PTA to help decorate the new school that the children will be going to after the Christmas break. Although my children are too young to understand what took place, I was happy to make a special snowflake with each of them to send off in hopes of putting a smile on the face of another child.
