It’s Fri-yay!!! Every week I round up a few of my favorite things from the web, locally, and from life, and I share them here:
Y’ALL!!!!! If the sizes you need are still available, you will flip over these sale prices on outdoor gear for kids! Free shipping, too!
The Oakiwear ran suit I mentioned a few weeks ago is almost too small for bear. (She’s so long in the torso!) I paid full price for it on Amazon. I hope to snag a replacement in the right size from Tuff Kids. Maybe a separate rain pants and jacket set instead of the one piece suit.
(Other than the fit, that OAKI rain suit is awesome. Seriously. We had way too much fun in the rain the other day and I didn’t take any photos. They’re heavy-duty, breathable, and really seem like they’re worth the money.)
First of all, this blog’s Instagram feed is gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Follow Run Wild My Child on Instagram. You won’t regret it.
Those people are so much more hardcore outdoorsy than I am. I’m both impressed and inspired.
I also luuuuuurve this idea of making journey sticks!What a fun way to encourage narration, and a fun twist for nature study or hikes! Love, love, love!
Bear’s class at Charlottesville Waldorf School will celebrate a spring festival at the end of the term, and we’re supposed to make our child a flower or spring party crown for the occasion.
Bear’s teacher distributed patterns for two basic felt crowns we can embellish as desired, but of course I have to look around on Pinterest for further inspiration. (I’m going to have to force myself to stay simple and realistic over here!)
The crowns are supposed to be made from felt or fabric, or could also be made from fresh flowers. No paper crowns here!
I love this floral crown. But maybe I should do something more headband-like? Or use fresh flowers? Something different entirely? So many possibilities!
Seriously…look at this knight and dragon felt crown! So fun! (It was on etsy but is no longer available. I found the image on Pinterest.)
