St. Patrick's Day came early!
Kids' Workshop got into the St. Patrick's Day spirit this afternoon as we prepared GREEN waffles for lunch! We'd say they were a hit for most of our friends - luckily we had cheesy pasta, fried ham and fruit available just in case! Children decided they were a lovely shade of "mint green" and most agreed that they didn't taste any different, even with their green food coloring!
Friends enjoyed surprising their teachers and Marley with our crazy-colored waffles on delivery runs!
After lunch, KW had a pretty chill afternoon. Children built ships with legos, read stories together, chatted over mandalas and finished their duck stories started yesterday.
We find that mandalas in the afternoon offers children a nice, calm and comfortable context to engage in conversation together. Overheard while making mandalas today:
Rose: Let's talk about something we all know.
Prater: How about My Little Pony? Do you remember the lion with wings?
Lila: Nightmare Queen?
Rose: When she falls and has scratches and her face and tries to say sorry? We only watch it in Italian. Do you remember the slaves?
Lila: Do you remember Nightmare's black crown? One of Olivia's friend's Grandma is named My Little Pony.
Rose: Was she 55? 45? Like my Daddy?
Lila: Yeah she was. Hey, Olivia's symbol was a heart, Rose!
Rose: Just like me! Does anybody know Pinkalicious? Does anybody watch the movie?
Prater: Yes, because remember from ballet?
Ellee: Remember Goldilicious from ballet?
Lila: No it's called sing and dance.
Rose: Can we all just call it ballet?
Lila: Yes we can.
