It is wonderful to observe the children’s enthusiasm to help and imitate the adults. "I can do it, too!". Putting up all the chairs on the table takes a strong will and perseverance, and sometimes the helping hand of a friend. Not only does this activity strengthen gross motor and social skills, it is also an example of learning that is entirely self-directed.
Our parents have been sewing a little felted toy for their children; some are making bunnies, others bilbies or chick-shaped egg warmers for Easter.
Our first painting experience was with Lemon Light yellow - a summer color, which we turned into a Sunbeam Spiral. I am looking forward to observing the autumn changes in our garden and painting with the colours of Golden, Vermillion and Carmine red.
