We are celebrating festivals that create a sense of belonging and mark the rhythms of the year. At Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten we have been celebrating some of the Steiner inspired festivals to mark the change in seasons. Olivia introduced us to the Advent Spiral.
The children and adults worked together during the day to create a beautiful outdoor Advent / Winter Spiral from the abundance of evergreen that we have at Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten. When evening arrived, parents and children went to the spiral and lit their candles in the middle of the spiral. There was a story, some singing and reflection, and finally mulled cider, delicious mince pies and gingerbread to share with our families.
Thank you to everyone who came along to share this special festival with us.
