Little Hen has been at Waldorf Art Day Camp (and thus immersed in magical-make-believe) for the past two weeks, .Â Her sister misses her terribly while she’s gone (“Is it time to pick up sissy yet?Â Is it time to pick up sissy yet???”), but we’ve been trying to do something special in the mornings – just Firecracker and me (and sometimes the baby in the backpack)Â – a trip to the coffee shop for steamers, a visit to the craft store, a walk to the park, making brownies, that kind of thing.
So, here’s some of what my artistic 6 year-old has been creating this week of magic and sculpting –
A magic wand made from a tree limb, yarn, wire, and a piece of quartz
A fairy sculpture from wooden beads, wire, modeling beeswax, and tissue paper.
a wet-felted bumblebee, and rope and embroidery floss-sewn hive (which went straight on the nature table).
While camp has been a wonderful experience, it will be good for Little Hen to have a break next week, and for all of us to reconnect and plan some special outings and activities as a whole family.
