NEW Goddess Girls: Athena the Wise crafts

Goddess Girls #5: Athena the Wise will be in stores in early April!

Joan and Suzanne are busy making these GoddessGirls bead necklaces on stretchy colorful cord. They can be shortened into bracelets. We bought the cord and beads at Michaels. We've heard from girls making Goddess Girls Shrinky Dinks, too. If you make any Goddess Girls jewelry, crafts, art, or other awesome goddessy stuff, you can send us a photo (if your parents say it's okay) and we'll post it on our blogs and FaceBook Goddess Girls page!

We'll be giving these necklace/bracelets away along with some other goodies to celebrate Athena the Wise soon, so check back in the coming weeks!

Wondering what ATHENA THE WISE is about? Here's the inside story:

Athena isn’t the only new kid at Mount Olympus Academy. When a mortal boy named Heracles transfers in, she knows what he’s going through. She started at MOA just a few months ago! Not only does Heracles need help fitting in, he also has to complete twelve “labors” or he’ll be kicked out of the academy. When her dad, Principal Zeus, asks her to secretly watch out for the new boy, Athena winds ups capturing mythical beasts and shoveling poop. It will take all of her famed wisdom to sort out her own problems and help Heracles succeed!

“…a clever take on Greek deities…” ~ Booklist
