I am so lucky to have a good friend like Anna to fill in for me at the preschool when I need to leave town for a few days. I heard about the children's adventures in felted wool bracelet making early in the week, but I wasn't there to take part.
At drop off this morning we were told it would be the last day for one of our kids. Gulp. Her mother starts a full-time job on Monday so they need full-time care for their daughter...which we are not able to provide. The sudden news of her leaving sent me reeling...I had to quick think of a parting gift. Digging through the felted wool sweater basket I found some scraps so I could quickly stitch her a present during free play.
A heart with it's own little pouch seemed like the perfect thing. At sharing time the kids got to pass the heart and say a little good-bye wish to their friend. By pick up time the kids added more treasures to her little pouch...an acorn, a shell and a dragon tear.
On Tuesday we will have our Harvest Festival (also know as Michaelmas). In preparation for the craft I'd like to do, I needed a bunch of wooden discs...luckily, my partner and her husband have all the right wood cutting equipment and were able to make these for me.
Happy Friday friends!
