Lantern Walks at Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten

Lantern Walks at Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten
19 Nov 2016

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 Martinmas and the tradition of the lantern walks.

The children had been busy making and decorating lanterns in the morning. We shared some of our lanterns at our morning circle time and talked about our lantern walks to come in the evening. What a new and beautiful experience for us all - coming together, sharing our light, singing as we walked, and finally meeting at the log circle. We had parents join us and I was touched by the coming together of our community. Thank you to everyone that shared this with us and to Olivia for her hard work.

“Each of us is one small light, but together we shine bright!”
