We have been growing our relationship with fire over these past few weeks, appreciating our fire's warmth in the tipi and enjoying popcorn and tea heated over the flames. In our fire lessons we focused on understanding what fire needs, making tinder from cedar bark, processing sticks into kindling, and making our own fire house structures.
The children decorate cards with decomposing Madrone leaves, which are opaque and naturally catch the light. We call them fairy wings! We love collecting nature treasures and creating beautiful artwork from them.
