"Ojo de Dios" or "Eye of God" Craft Ideas


The Huichol Indians of Mexico and the Aymara Indians of Bolivia weave bly colored yarn on a simple frame of crossed sticks to make a design called "Ojo de Dios" or "Eye of God". Originally, "God's Eyes" were made to be placed on an altar so that the gods could watch over the praying people and protect them. They are now more often sold in markets, reminding us that God looks with love on people everywhere. Thanks for this tidbit.

Tip: A quick and easy way to make a God's Eye is with variegated yarn. There's no need to change yarns as you wind.

Pearl Harbor Day Dec. 7 Teaching Ideas-Lessons

"The Pearl Harbor Naval Station on the Hawaiian island of Oahu is the hub of United States Pacific naval power. Most of the Navy's major commands have headquarters there. Yet even after sixty-five years, its name is still synonymous with the surprise Japanese attack of "December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy." The United States suffered 3,700 casualties, along with damage to twenty-one ships and 300 planes."
