During our March workshop, we lashed branches to make a giant weaving loom for wool and things the children could find along the river. We have not finished the loom, but we’ll be completing it in the next few sessions.
We cooked popcorn on the fire and fresh mint tea. We played some games to shake the cobwebs off, made a hammock that kept the children busy for a good couple of hours.
We really enjoyed the warmth coming from the sunshine and the good company!
We had a great gathering at Cody Dock this morning. Despite the snow and bitter cold, we had some brave, nature loving and adventurous children/parents show up! Thank you, thank you! There was the warmth of the fire, a very interesting and fun story, Indian chai with spices (cloves, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper), a little walk to collect twigs for our crafts and an embroidery session around the fire pit…that kept the kids so engrossed, they didn’t want to leave.
We look forward to our next gathering as winter slowly turns to spring!!
