Week 4 - Thinking Tree Art & Nature Program

Week 4 - Thinking Tree Art & Nature Program

Weather: full sun, exceptionally warm for October (felt like 32C)

Soup made by the kids: Carrot-Coconut

Handmade projects today:
  • wood slice painted necklaces (ladybugs) using hand-drills to make holes
  • cloth doll making continued from last week, adding yarn hair
  • adding to our plant presses for lantern making project (coming up)
Art lessons today:
  • charcoal tree house drawings based on logs and trees around the yard, then sharing our drawings with the group - such details and imagination!

Other highlights:

  • sunny walk to nearby community garden to collect colourful fall leaves and last flower petals for our plant presses
  • Flower Families card game with our older kids during free time  
  • building a human obstacle course as our morning warm-up game
  • closing circle check-in where one child said "she loved everything" about the day!
  • such a beautiful relaxed day with our group - enjoying the warm outdoor weather while we can
