M – December 12: Baking + Snowflakes

It’s baking week! Bring whatever your kiddos want to bake, and let’s get busy in the kitchen. I’ll try to buy some of these paper doilies on my grocery run tomorrow, so we can make these glue-gun snowflakes. (Or here in printable, if you’re not a video person.) If anyone has another simple craft, please …

M – December 5: BYO Activity + Comfort Food

BYO activity day! Whatever your kids want to do – puzzles, games, art. We’ve also missed a bunch of kids’ outdoor games due to weather or lack of immediate enthusiasm. Let’s rally + roll through zombie tag, ghost in the graveyard, four square, +/or whatever else the lovely weather outdoors allows. We’ll also celebrate National …

M – November 28: Stop-Motion

Stop-motion is back by popular demand! Let’s bring personal devices for picture-taking + stop-motion creation, along with any props/set design options. I’m not sure if we’ll have a “show” or just go person to person, show-and-tell style. Anyone can weigh in on this via group text, which I renamed “Wildling Mamas” instead of the list …

M – November 14: Spray Paint + Pickles

Spray paint art today! Two kinds in play with the same basic ingredients: spray paint + water. Whatever the weather, we’ll be completing these project outside over a tarp, and we will need to take turns. I will bring one tarp. If anyone else has a tarp to contribute, it’ll be colorful afterwards! Dish soap …

M – October 17: Terrariums

Build a terrarium out of whatever materials you + your kid love. These can go like an indoor fairy garden, or they can harbor live plants, or a thousand things between. Mason jar terrariums. If you have all the tweezers, a spice jar terrarium. The dream terrarium (life goal). Bring a jar to use + some …

M – September 26: Tie-Dye + Messy Painting

This was pretty popular last time, so we’re excited to tie-dye again! We’ll be taking turns, dying wet items in shallow bowls or tubs. I have a set of colorful dies + plenty of rubber bands, plus a shibori kit to share, but no extra dye-able gear. Adults are welcome to dye too! Please bring …

M – September 19: Soccer + Artist Trading Cards

Our semester plan is here! Download to plan in advance or be surprised each week – up to you! And thanks, everyone, for your theme ideas + input at our planning session. We’ll set up a soccer game in the morning, learn rules (or not), make teams +  play. Adults too! We have pinnies for …

AR – May 9: Alice in Wonderland Tea Party (+ Make-up Water Day)

Prepare for our end-of-semester party, the Alice in Wonderland tea! We are planning to create a long table, like in the story, where we can all sit outdoors with myriad teapots and enjoy a feast of yummy foods. Jennifer sent the most magical list of party ideas. Can everyone try to watch the movie/read the …

AR – May 2: Water, Water, Water, Goop

Okay, it better be warm, because we’re doing the blasters again! We’re setting up for the usual watery mayhem with whatever your kids like to use. I will bring some water balloons – just know that we’ll spend some time picking the pieces out of the grass later on – and have asked for access …
