Happy Winter Solstice!

It's the first time we have celebrated the Winter Solstice.

We sat down for supper and turned off all the lights for a short while to
tell Big Seed a little about the Soltice and he then said...
"Wake up sun, wake up!"

Why do I worry about him understanding things? How we underestimate little beings!
We decorated the table with all the candles we could find in the house.
Big Seed made a needle felted sun which he positioned right next to his plate.

We used a cookie cutter as a template.

It's quite 3D - but he is only 3, a good first attempt.

We hung it up under the door frame after supper.

Happy Solstice to you!



  1. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us. I talked a bit about it but didn't do any activity. Maybe next year. I really enjoy reading your blog.
    Happy Solstice to you too!!!

  2. Lovely. I feel the same way with my children. As soon as 'see' more evidence of their natural learning, I stop, remember to trust - again - & have another deep sigh of relief. Happy Solstice. We are basking in the Summer Solstice in Australia. Katie x
