Less really WAS more for us all as what I though would be a let down for them turned into an hour and a half discussion full of pondering and laughing together!
Yesterday we had our first go with (not so) wet on wet painting..oops. I can’t wait to get a proper sponge and continue with this! I am using some activity ideas in a book I have been reading to get started with our new adventures with watercolor. It is really neat to see how differently my five year old and seven year old experienced one of their favorite activities using a different approach and limited supplies. So rewarding for all of us! The more I learn and apply the new things I am learning surrounding Waldorf the more aha moments I am having!
” It must be a full moon since the sky is so much brighter during a full moon.”- seven year old
”Mine is a sunshine because the sky is blue on a sunny day, now when the blue drips down it’s getting cold because they are icicles” -five year old
” Oh mom yours looks like a sunflower that dropped its petals when the yellow dripped down it made a stem! You know how they look when we go to the pumpkin patch? When they have no more petals!”
