The sun has got it's hat on!

Hip hip hip hooray!! The sun has got his hat on and he's coming out to play!

After a drab, dreary and cold winter the sun has awoken and begun to shine! I am so happy to see him and feel myself slowly coming out of hibernation.

This week I find myself reflecting on the activities of the past week and months.

The activities we are creating are going well and the children are enjoying them! But it's not a picnic! We need to think on our feet and keep those who fly through their activity involved while we encourage those who are still working methodically through their work. We are learning how to do this bit by bit but there can be a times when the class runs wild!

This week being so close to Valentines day we made valentines cards with our kindergarten class and with the Hungarian school. Our four year olds and a fair amount of the older Hungarian class dedicated theirs to their mother. I think this shows that it is your mother who is your first love so our future partners have a hell of alot to live up to! But some love triangles did emerge among the ten year olds! And one girl dedicated her card to the only friend worthy of her affections, her cat.

In the Roma center we decided to make a giant heart collage and everyone worked together as a team and made a huge valentines card for the center.

It's safe to say my art workshop was a valentines free zone!! We painted and finished off our masks. The ideas and creativity used in the decoration was incredible! This week we will be doing printing and I can't wait to see what we will create together!

Spring brings a season of new possibilities, new growth and change. I wonder what this one will bring!!
