Day 26: Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

It’s been an odd week.  I had big intentions and a few extra things planned but my motivation has been lacking lately and some activities were postponed due to wet and muddy conditions.  Extra “life” stuff this week like booking appointments and a busier day job has also slowed me down a bit. But we still have many learning opportunities each day due to natural kid curiosity! 

We collected our potion ingredients a few days ago, and a clear weather day allowed us to go outside to make the potions for our 2nd Annual Witches’ Cauldron. They love experimenting with the food dyes, stirring, scooping and suctioning out water, and using the nature items for their brew.

Once they finished with the items collected on our nature walk, they started looking around the yard for bits to add.  Grass was pulled, sand was scooped, and then they raided my herbs to add a few more sprigs! Kai asked for a stick (luckily we have a pile of them in our yard acquired from nature walks) to use as her wand and made up spells.
