at the Waldorf School
The Waldorf school Christmas Bazaar provided us with the perfect chance to reintroduce the children to dagis-preschool after being away for 6 weeks.
We got to go as a family and discover how the school looked under the snow fall
And play together on the snow covered swings.
The window decorations reflected the white of the world outdoors.
This sweet pastel of a child exploring in the snow was on a wall in SwedeGirl's classroom.
The season table at SwedeBaby's dagis has changed from fall to Winter since we left.
The table in SwedeGirl's class has changed to winter, too.
Though cold outside, the Steiner inspired school always has a special warmth inside.
We were able to explore the classrooms of all the grades as there were activities through out the school.
A chalk board in the middle school had a magical winter drawing.
A table in the 7th grade classroom, where the kids did a holiday puppet show for the little ones with handmade puppets. It was a fund raiser for the big trip they will take in 9th grade, usually to somewhere in Africa.
The older children were also selling crafts they made.
Bent Wire Wrapped Tomte
Under the seasonal art work of the older children
there was glögg and pepparkakor for sale.
And a variety of homemade baked good are almost always on hand at school events.
A Seasonal Specialty of Sweden for Lucia time
There was also a craft room where baskets of wool, felt, wire, beads, and sticks were on hand to make decorations such as these.
I met a few new English speaking families while making wool angels.
And SwedeDaddy and the Girl worked on a star of sticks and ribbon.
Tomorrow, we hope to head back to school and get back in routine of our Swedish life for a few weeks before the holiday break.
