Tonight we celebrated Martinmas with some Waldorf families in Dubai. We did a Lantern walk with the children and parents in Safa Park. It was beautiful. Everyone had made a wonderful effort and the lanterns were stunning.

" Tiny lanterns glowing bright.

In the darkness of the night,

Tiny lanterns light our way

Blessed be Saint Martin's day."

Nana's Dolls

We are very lucky to have an artistic and talented grandmother who has made the girls a set of dolls for their play. A King, Queen, Princess, Prince, Witch and Fairy.

Swan swim back again, well swum swan."

Gray are the geese,

Green is the grazing"

Summer Nature Table

Our first 'real' effort at a nature table. Emily(6) felted the butterfly. Katie (5), Livi (3) and Emily did the bees. They were quite easy. First roll a black felt ball. Push it into a, egg shape. Neddle felt a but of yellow magic wool for the wings.

The boats are walnut shells with duck feathers glued in. And our visiting fairy is a wee little lilly flower fairy.
