Crafting On

Our task, regarding creativity, is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible. No one can do more. ~Loris Malaguzzi

My camera card is wonky, or possibly broken.
I have a few photos that I wanted to share of some of the crafts that the children completed last week, BUT, I may not be able to.

One of the crafts that the kids really enjoyed doing was the caterpillar craft. Everyone - including the youngest babe did a really good job- until she ripped hers apart. Nevertheless, they are beautiful to hold and to look at. Take a look!

What you Need:
marker or pen
small colourful pompoms
goggly eyes
pipe cleaners
hot glue gun/glue sticks


Self Portraits
We talked about feelings and emotions and the children (using various loose parts and pieces) made their self-portraits. Aren't they amazing?

Spring’s warmth is upon us, and it is a lovely thing. There are sniffles here and there...complaints of headaches, but we can't blame that on spring right?
We are pondering whether we want to start planting seeds now or if we should wait. We have always loved gardening, but with upcoming changes, I am not sure if I want to take on one more project that I will drop mid-way (not for a lack of passion or desire, but time). We will see.
The best thing about the lovely trip around the sun, is that we get many chances to try, again and again. And so the children and I will sit down and plan our activities for the next few months ...right after Easter celebrations are all done :)
Have a great week everyone!

Last week we focused on developing fine and gross motor skills, learning new french words and mindfulness in all things.
Our head, heart and hands were full. We hope to keep the momentum going as we prepare for Easter, and whatever else the coming days bring into our home.
Happy April!
