Through the Eyes of a Fairy


 

Nothing in this world is as magical as the eyes of a child. These eyes can turn a cardboard box into a castle, a handkerchief into a doll, and a stick into a sword. Unfortunately, as we get older, we often lose the awe, and we need Hollywood to make that magic for us. It is my humble belief, however, that the more we nurture fantasy and make believe in our children, the longer they will be able to hold onto their own magic. This magic translates into a never ending awe of the world, the ability to be a creative and open problem solver and, well, a happy and joyous adult. Fantasy and creativity do not need to become a fleeting childhood stage; rather, it can be a way of viewing the world, even as an adult, that makes it possible to accomplish the improbable. In my mind, fantasy and magic are essential human elements that should be nurtured in our children. 
 

Having said that, I got the wee ones a new face painting kit. I took some pics as Michelle transformed the girls into fairies. (Only got pics of...Read more

A Little More Art

All the Waldorf art talk on the blog recently has inspired me to pull out the art supplies a bit more this week. My older two kiddos have been enrolled in an art program at our co-op this year and I will admit that we haven't done as many family art projects at home lately as we have done in the past. The kids always have their own projects going, art is a part of their daily lives, and they have brought home some wonderful projects from class... but it is so much fun to sit down as a family and create something together. While Bug was napping yesterday with a fever (hopefully the last of the winter icks), the girls and I did just a bit of school. By their request we did Math and Art. They wanted to play games and paint rainbows.

Little Birdies Coloring Page


In an ongoing quest to keep Pixie in coloring pages, I just added our Little Birdies Coloring Page, inspired by our Little Birdie Applique Block, inspired by our Little Birdies Eye Case. I love these Little Birdies. I added a limb of a tree, and I think the three look very chummy! Pixie has not seem them yet, but I know she'll be painting them first chance she gets!

The Little Birdie Coloring Page can be found HERE.

Enjoy!
