The Candlelight Fair at the Waldorf School last Saturday was a huge success! Amongst the many activities available for all ages there was the Children’s Corner which is organised and ran by the Kindergarten parents. Children’s Corner is a magical space where only children (ages 3 to 4th grade) are allowed in and can choose up to three hand crafted items in exchange for the fair tokens. The crafts are all made by parents, mostly mums, throughout the year. There were about 1500 little crafts! We meet every Wednesday morning and have lots of fun making the lovely little treasures for the children in our community and their friends. On the Friday before the fair a group of more or less ten parents transformed one of the kindergarten rooms into this magic space. It was hard work but worth every minute of it when you see the little people coming out of the room proudly showing their treasures to their parents and friends. Priceless!
The room is darkened so the fairy lights can make it magical, but it makes t harder for good photography. So apologies for the yellowish tone my camera produces when in low light. I tried to correct it in Photoshop but wasn’t so happy with it either.
A feira da escola, no sÃ¡bado passado, foi um sucesso! Entre as muitas atividades oferecidas para todas a idades tinha 0 Children’s Corner (Cantinho das CrianÃ§as) o qual Ã© organizado pleos pais das crianÃ§as do Jardim da InfÃ¢ncia. Children’s Corner Ã© um espaÃ§o mÃ¡gico onde sÃ³ os pequenosÂ (de 3 anos atÃ© a 4a sÃ©rie primÃ¡ria) podem entrar e escolher atÃ© trÃªs Ãtens para levar para casa. Todos os itens sÃ£o feitos pelos pais, principalmente mÃ£es, durante o ano. Tinham mais de 1500 peÃ§as!!! O grupo se encontra toda quarta feira pela manhÃ£ e se diverte um bocado criando esses adorÃ¡veis tesouros para as crianÃ§as da escola e seus amigos. Na sexta feira vÃ©spera da feira um grupo de mais ou menos dez pais transformaram uma das salas do jardim da infÃ¢ncia nesse espaÃ§o mÃ¡gico. Deu trabalho, mas valeu cada gata gota de suor ao ver as crianÃ§as saindo da sala e mostrando orgulhosos seus tesouros para os pais e amigos. Sem preÃ§o!
