Buddies ~ chickens, pots and birthdays

***In September 2011 6 families got together and started Buddies Home School. Each week we meet in each other's home and follow a simple rhythm: movement and music, craft/ baking, snack time, free play and story time. Each part of the session is led by a different family. We are sharing this week's session with you here...***

Zoe led our movement and music this week and taught us three really lovely chicken songs, 
 including one about a hen and her 5 hatching eggs :-)
 For our craft today we painted terracotta pots using poster paints,
 it was lovely and all the kids really enjoyed it.

 We left them to dry on the dresser and next week we are going to fill them with earth and seeds :-)
 Before our snack we had to sing Happy Birthday to not one, not two but three of our Buddies :-)

 Flo had baked 2 really gorgeous lemon and white chocolate cakes that we shared at snack time
 baby girls having a conference
 the atmosphere was so lovely today, everyone was very sweet and calm and during free play all the Buddies took themselves off and made a wonderful train track in the living room (while the mummies polished off the cake!)

We ended with this story, and are already looking forward to next week :-)
