May Crowns and Spring Fairies



Although it seems we can't get winter to leave us behind (it's supposed to freeze tonight for the second night in a row!) we have at least managed to turn over the soil for our garden, and we spent this morning making May Crowns at our Waldorf Homeschool Co-op. I have been leading the bi-monthly activities for our group of 10 kindergarteners, and unfortunately, I rarely remember my camera! Today I did manage to get some photos of their lovely crowns. Each child finger-crocheted the base of their crown, and then sewed on felt flowers and leaves. Some of the flowers were made from felt we had felted ourselves at our previous session. If you are interested in trying it out, let me know, and I will post some instructions.
The fairy is another version of the needle-felted fairy in my last post. This one is available for sale in my Etsy shop, and I will be listing kits to make fairies in these colors as well.
