Pelle's New Suit

As part of my course, we had to prepare and perform a puppet-show in kindergarten. As I am Swedish, I just had to choose one of Elsa Beskow's most beautiful stories - Pelle's New Suit. So with no further ado - here are the finished puppets and scene...

The children love the story, especially the 'magic' bit where Pelle dye his yarn from white to blue - 'how does he do it' - it the question every time.

The puppets are of 'Waldorf Style' except the two grannies that are needle felted.

Beginning of May, we celebrated our May Festival in beautiful Queens Woods in North London. This is our May-Pole, after the 'weaving dance'.

When I went to my course last weekend, I had a whole suitcase full of assignments to hand in. It has been quite full on this year to try to fit in studying with work and little boys. But at least one of the assignments were of practical nature this time - which is to be honest, much easier to find time for than all the essay's and presentations I also had to write and prepare...

So a little peep into the bag I handed in:

'Teachers Tools'

Clever way to keep embroidery floss.

Apron (sorry for totally different colours... it is soft pink in reality)

...and my new friend 'Pippi" who will start kindergarten as soon as she got her wardrobe sorted. On her 'need for kindergarten list' is: wellies, water-proofs, summer- & winter-hat
