A celebration of Spring


The children and I are missing our playgroup mornings. They ask me when they will see their friends and when will we bake bread.

I am finding our quiet Mondays at home to be important though. A day to rest, run some errands, play in the garden and so on.

And as we settle into our new rhythm more I imagine we will start catching up with friends again.


So it was lovely to look over these photos from our last playgroup morning that my friend took for me.

A morning on which we celebrated the arrival of Spring.


That Monday morning the sun had shone.

After a weekend of rain, and more to come. But for our Spring maypole celebration it was just right, just lovely.


The children excitedly headed outside after making Spring crowns.

And as I unravelled the pretty ribbons on the maypole they drew near. Choosing their colour.


We sang as we danced around the maypole in one direction (you can see the song lyrics here), wrapping the ribbons beautifully, occasionally getting caught in each others ribbon, before turning and dancing the other way.

It was a beautiful and fitting farewell for our little playgroup community.

We miss them and hold onto our happy memories.


You can see how we made our Spring Crowns here and how to make a simple maypole here.

Blessings, Kelly
