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.

Puppet theatre

Matthew made the theatre and I made the puppets. They are marionettes and our first story with them was "The Frog Prince".
