This morning we talked about pancake day. When we got to the woods the children explored, some dug holes and found roots and worms. Other children mixed mud and made pretend pancakes. Whatever they chose to do they collaborated with their friends. There was lots of chatter and sharing, and the children really stretched their noticing muscles.
We went to the fire circle and everyone helped to make the mixture. Then I tried to cook pancakes! What a disaster, I persevered but finally we decided the mixture wasn’t right so we had toasted marshmallows instead.
