Preparing for playgroup

playgroup preparations

I always get a little anxious just before our Waldorf inspired playgroup kicks off again.

Getting organised seems to help. Making sure I have all the things I need. Writing lists of anything that needs doing (like changing the angle of the slide! Remembering to give Wookie dog a little morning outing down the side of the house).

Making sure I have the bowls, cups, chopping boards at the ready. Checking I have enough spelt flour, honey, olive oil…

Do I have a good variety of tea for different tastes? {I adore this Chai}

Is the house tidy and ready for visitors? Will people feel comfortable? {I thank my mum for my good dose of house pride, not a bad thing *wink*}

What will we sing? Does our wonderful storyteller need any props for our story? Little animals, trees or the like.

Then I like to ponder about the families that are coming to join us.

Will this be their first experience of a Waldorf inspired playgroup? Or have they been to others? How old are the children and how many will be joining us?

I like to mediate on how I would like the morning to go. How I would like to create a warm and nurturing space. Where mums can connect, while watching and guiding their little ones.

And then the morning happens.

And at the end, as everyone leaves I take a deep breath and think well that was lovely before I tidy away the bowls, the cups, the chopping boards… *smile*

Blessings, Kelly
