International Fairy Tea Party 2014

This is the second year that we have participated in this growing event created by Fafu and Interaction Imagination. You can see our photos from last year here

Of course I always have a lot of big plans on pinterest, but it is a busy time of year and I need to remember to start preparing ahead of time!!  When the day arrived I decided to keep it simple and stick with an Autumn colors theme. We talked a lot about what colors we find in autumn. In the morning we made crowns covered with Fall-colored scribbles and paper scraps and fake leaves. Outside they walked around with their tape covered sticks to add collections from nature. 

Then we prepared the feast. Leaf shaped peanut butter toast, with red and green fairy sprinkles. We picked apples and grapes from our playground. I added a tiny bit of juice to the water to make pink "fairy juice."  
While they ate their picnic, I read them "Wild Child," by Lynn Plourde.

They made "soup" with the leftover grapes and apples and offered it to the woodland creatures.
