We just put the finishing touches on our September Focus Table. The theme is leaves and trees, so we’ve been working hard to find things that fit the category. We started off with some leaf print paintings that my son had done while visiting a children’s art class that was focused around a general nature theme. My son produced a large volume of drawings, paintings, and sculptural objects from the three hour class, and we put them aside just for this month. The rest of the work is displayed proudly on our fridge. Next, we added in a Montessori activity from Parts of Wonder on etsy, and some wooden toys from woodmouse and Rjabinnik. These two vendors also sell to the Waldor community from their respective stores on the etsy site. We’re displaying a large number of leaf and tree themed books primarily relating to changes observable throughout the fall season. We also have our own, handmade leaf identification cards. Throughout the month, we will be adding more of our own handmade crafts to the Focus area. We will be using Look What I Did with a Leaf to create a variety of animal art out of leaves. We will be also working on various crafts that we find detailed on various blog and websites.
