I've been doing a little Waldorf inspired activities at home with my son. He loves it! I can't wait for my books to arrive to further "homeschool" a little and make this our summer of learning and playing.
Maybe even make a time capsule for the last summer of my baby transitioning to being a big boy and have of all his favorite things in it and toys we're making this summer.
Recently I took him down to the ravine to collect some twigs and leaves. This is what he picked and what we did!
This will be our summer of playing, exploring and making our own crafts and play, play, play!
|as we enter the ravine, fun awaits us!|
This is my summer to teach him how we can make our own fun with what nature provides for us and buying local produce so he will learn the appreciation of buying local and supporting our farmers. I wish I had a garden but we live in a "skyscraper" as he calls our apartment building.
We're going to invite friends with our outdoor adventures maybe show them some Waldorf inspired fun, invite them to paint and create and maybe sneak in a trip to the farm and go strawberry picking.
I want our summer to be magical and fun and a memory he will have for ever, everything is so high tech these days, this is how I bring back the simplicity.
I know it's not really our last summer but I can't but the words together on what I mean. I hope you know what I mean, LOL!
He's starting school, we've been together 24/7 and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Our next project is to make a Wishing Tree, I actually found a perfect stick with 3 branches(one for me, hubby and dear son) since we don't have a front or back yard and we'll making Walnut boats and take them down to the ravine or take them sailing by the water reservoir at our park.
What will your summer be like? Will there be traveling? Summer Camps? We're on a budget so this is what we'll be doing :)
