Signs of Spring

This was a child-led, Waldorf-style, outdoor project involving scissors, sticks, acorns, stones and lots of moss. Also known as: What the kids did while I did yard work. They made stone soup, acorn and moss homes for lightning bugs (they had real lightning bugs!), and little leprechaun beds with pillows. It was serious work and when their hands got cold and they wanted to come inside, everything had to be saved in buckets for tomorrow.

Oh, and look who's blooming by the sunroom wall.
Easter is early this year and so, it seems, is spring!
