Today during the Multi-Age Class "Specials", where the children get to choose from a variety of different activities such as photography, yoga, painting, music making and gardening, the kids that chose gardening had even more choices. They could either cut sweet peas, do some planting or learn how to make daisy chains.
Many chose to make daisy chains...and with more than just daisies. We used poppies, cauliflower, nasturtiums, flowering broccoli and ranunculus as well as mexican sunflowers and sweet peas. It was great fun and everyone seemed very focused and involved. All of this experienced to the music made by kids participating in the music special. It felt much like an impromptu spring festival!
Afterward, many decided to decorate the garden fence with their creations while others took theirs home to mom.
