This week we welcomed our newest addition to the Children’s Religious Education program, Solveij Rosa Praxis. We are so excited to have her join us!

The older group worked on creating an illustrated poster of our 7 UU Principles to hang in our beautiful new classroom that is undergoing the last of its remodel as we speak.

The younger group read The Big Orange Splot, a story about a man who creates a very unique house in a neighborhood of identical homes. Afterwards, kids made their own unique houses out of cardboard boxes and colored paper.

This week we met in the Community Room to accommodate the exciting remodeling activities that are happening in our classrooms. I can’t wait to show you all our beautiful new set-up in the coming weeks.

To strengthen the bond between children from the two classes, we played several team-building games, including Human Knot and Drop the Sheet. We had a lively group and a lot of fun on a cold morning!

This week, we continued with our special clay project as kids created animal or plant shapes to attach to the clay rattles, using a crosshatching technique and slip to fasten them securely. Karen will bring them to her studio to fire them in her kiln and bring them back to Wildflower to be picked up on whichever Sunday you are present. They’ll be lined up on the high shelf in the Rainbow Room. If your child would like to add color, they can use acrylic paint to decorate the rattles.

The next two weeks will be intergenerational services and then we’ll be back to our usual curriculum. Happy Holidays to all!
