Lots Of Dancing and Spinning (spin art that is)!
When I look back at the photos from our playdays...it reminds me how incredibly lucky we are to have this group! The children teach and remind me how to be in the moment and how to simply enjoy life! They inspire me!
I love to set up the environment for the children each week, but what I love most is watching how the children use their imaginations and magically make something so simple so incredibly special :). Adding a few dress ups to our "outdoor classroom" this week suddenly had two dancing princesses and a few Daddy's.
There were a few tears when one of the Princesses decided she no longer wanted to dance, but with a little help with the "words" the princess was able to say, "I don't want to dance right now" and it was all good! Sometimes children just need a little help with the words! This just proves once again that the "work" of childhood is "play." They are learning the in's and out's of socialization...it is HARD work! It takes practice to and lot's of real experience!
