We have been very busy with some fall fun! Following the Waldorf tradition, I have immersed the children in the lovely book, The Apple Cake, for the past few weeks. They now know the story quite well, and the time has come to bake our apple cake! We picked the apples together, and then headed inside to mix and stir. We made one gluten freee and one regular, and here is how it looked - it tasted delicious!
The garden is almost done for the year, but we are still harvesting materials from it. This season, the outdoor items we have gathered include leaves, sticks, rocks, acorns, and corn husks. These are a lot like straw, and so much can be made from this simple natural material. Here is one of Kaliana's finished products, a corn husk doll.
One other inside activity we tried was making galaxy dough. This is regular old playdough, with some blue and black food colouring added. I let the children mix in the glitter themselves; shaking it out was the best part
