A Midsummer Night's Dream

Carmen's class performed a wonderful celebration of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream last night. The kids rehearses, built props, rehearsed, gathered costume pieces, rehearsed, painted sets for the various scenes, and rehearsed some more. They did a wonderful job, every child should be very proud. I had the honor of helping the children organize their costumes and sewing like a madwoman. I am very thankful that we have been able to keep our kids at the school they attend over the years. I am always happy with the great stuff they are being taught.

So, I have been making shoes for all the fairies...and are they ever entertaining to create for each child. I also made a few fairy costumes and a set of donkey ears.

Happy Valentine's Day

Our most favorite holidays are Valentine's Day and Halloween, what better times to use your creativity and come up with something wonderful. All the kids came up with very thoughtful tokens for their pals. Carmen folded a bunch of paper cranes and strung them with beds and cloth scraps to make wonderful ornaments. Anthony folded paper boats and added lots of colorful hearts. Vincent made crazy hearts with all manner of scrap bin finds. Isabella made cards with Love Bugs on them, while Francesca made Valentine Fairies. Gianina in her usual sparkly way made Cupid Wands for all her friends. Emilia was cute, as always. Hopefully you all had a meaningful day filled with love from the ones you hold dear.
