The Christmas Wind Stole Jo's Scarf!

Hi Christmas Wind classes,

When you heard these words in Part 1 of the story . . .

The wind elbowed Jo’s mother and kicked her to the ground.

“Stop it!” Jo shook her fist at the sky. Ignoring her, the wind stole her scarf and blew out the light.

. . . many of you drew Jo’s scarf flipping and flying off into the night sky. In fact, even in some recent Part 3, 4 and 5 illustrations from some of you, I catch Jo’s scarf still swirling around amongst the stars! Click on the pictures below to see what I mean and check out the instructions below to MAKE YOUR OWN SCARF.

Just in case the wind ever steals YOUR scarf, here are a few ways you can make your own scarf. Maybe you can make this a class project, or perhaps this is something you want to try on your own or with your friends or family. Whether you actually make your own scarf or not using one of the project ideas below, I have this image in my head of all of you wearing your scarves and shaking your fists at the sky. If you ever take a picture like that, please send it to me so I can post it on my website!
