Cupcake Love

 

Last weekend our friend Hana brought her mom P’Sai, the owner of Love to Bake Home Bakery to the garden to help us with a special workshop. We got to work with P’Sai’s special baking instruments to mold icing fondant into a host of feathery friends. We rolled and flattened, cut and placed our fondant on top of the yummy vanilla cake. By the end of class there were little owls on a branch and also some ducks and chickens. Thanks P’Sai for your patient and caring tutorial! We had so much fun!

One of the cupcakes became our snack, and the other we took home to share with our families, mmm mmm good.

 

Garden Week

This week we explored all things garden. We used out body to mimic the shapes of seeds and stems to flowers blooming, we used our hands to trace and sketch the shapes of flowers, we dug in the dirt and repurposed old plastic bottles to bring new life, AND then we made the most delicious dirt chocolate to eat in cooking class.

 

 

We had so much fun growing with you this week, thanks for reminding us that every seed is special and unique to it’s soil and circumstances.

Happy Chinese New Year

This weekend we hosted some of our first visitors at Kids Yoga Garden to make Chinese Dragon puppets in celebration of Chinese New Year. This of course involved playing with our wall sized chalk boards, experimenting with colors and materials and having a dragon parade through our house! ❤

2017 is the year of the Fire Rooster and we hope it is a lucky and prosperous year for all.
