We are all enjoying the sunny and rainy days of autumn here at Kindy, and looking out for the bright colours of Rainbow Glow in the sky.
Rainbow Glow shines oh so bright, she fills our hearts with love;
A warm glow shines within us all when a rainbow shines above.
The children have been busy weaving their own autumn rainbows, and it’s been heart-warming to see their excitement and pride as they add each new colour and see their rainbows grow.
As the days grow colder and the autumn breezes blow, we have been watching Whistling Wind dance with the leaves, grasses and seed pods while Mother Earth weaves her autumn blanket to keep the new seeds warm. This week the children made autumn kites to swoop and soar in the cool autumn winds.
The children are all helping to make a class autumn weaving and are enthusiastically gathering colourful leaves, grasses, flowers etc… a lovely way for them to contribute their own nature discoveries and appreciate the abundance of gifts that Mother Earth provides.
Last week the children all painted terracotta pots and filled them with soil making cosy beds for their Bulb Babies who are all now tucked in and dreaming of springtime.
As the cooler weather gently encourages more contractive activities, little hands are eagerly learning to finger knit. The children are making woollen handles ready to sew onto their craft bags which they carefully tie-dyed, making surprising star patterns in all the colours of the rainbow.
In our Kindy garden, the warm golden light shines all around as the children climb Mother Mulberry Tree, extend their skills on the monkey bars, make elaborate creations in the mud pit, and sand pit and care for our guinea pigs and each other. They are really forming a harmonious group…. an absolute joy to behold!
