Easter baskets and treats

For the girls' baskets this year, we got them some bolga baskets that they can use with many activities we do like picking fruit, going to farmers' markets, toting goodies wherever...

Zoë's basket (so far--mostly done) has animal puppett tattoos, a sleepy elephant toy with a pocket, a rainbow flower necklace, treats that I left in the basket, a love bean that grows, pretty flower/pink ribbon, a book, headbands and watercolor pencils.

Eleni's basket has a bunny pillow like Zoë's, bright Indian elephants with little bells to hang, a love bean, a couple of books (including stickers), a little magnifying glass all her own, a wooden Mrs. Acorn (Elsa Beskow), and Stockmar watercolors (paints).

We're doing little baskets and treats for teachers and Sofia.

The Yoga Garden Game

This evening we finally played our new game: The Yoga Garden Game. (You might remember my post about cooperative games a while back.) We had a lovely time playing with flowers, night stars and of course yoga poses. It really came in handy for us that we've done the Yoga Kids DVDs before (particularly the one geared for 3-6 yr olds) since we knew most of the poses. Eric, however, didn't know them; and he found the card instructions very adequate. Doodlebug tried to take everything off the board most of the time, but she imitated the poses and was an actual "player" in our game tonight. Booger just loved the whole thing! Weldon game night was a great end to our weekend.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

This holiday is such a friendly reminder of my dear Grandma Hall.
