***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...***
This week at Buddies we celebrated autumn some more. Last year, one of the first crafts we did together at Buddies was making autumn crowns. This was such a success we decided to ask Amanda to do it again with us:First we folded a length of newspaper,
then fitted it around our heads, cutting off any excess:
They turned out so beautifully and each so individual and we found that they really seemed to represent each of the Buddies wee personalities.
Amanda, the queen of autumn!
While we were crafting the Buddette's were busy playing on the rug together reading stories and becoming friends. It's so special to see the next generation of Buddies emerging and starting to move towards a safe and gentle independence (there was not a sling in sight in this session!)
When the game got too rowdy we cleaned up and settled down for a story.
and as if by magic...
It was a wonderful story and the kids were completely spell bound!
