Though our Mini May Faire may have been wee, I am replete knowing I pursued a vision of toddlers enjoying a sweet "Mommy and Me" based on Waldorf principles. Over the course of 6 weeks, our sunflower seeds sprouted and grew so big (and will hopefully flower quite soon). We learned many fingerplays and poems, made beautiful Spring-inspired artwork together, met baby animals, and made new friends.
We walked around the maypole saying good-bye to our class with this song,
Sow the seeds in the ground below
Add the sun and the rain
Watch a garden grow,
I can see in front of me,
A garden by "Rosie" just as pretty as can be.
(Each child grew a miniature garden in a picnic basket to take home at the last class.)
DIY: to make the Maypole I found a thick stick and nailed ribbons to the top, stuck in a flower pot with soil, and covered with cloth and flowers.
