This Sunday we held an all-ages class where we discussed various fall traditions from around the world. We discussed some of the ways these celebrations are similar and different from the Halloween plans that many of our Wildflower kids have. Kids noticed that in many other cultures, loving spirits are welcomed, while in the United States, ghosts and skeletons are viewed as scary. Then, we made a loving spirit craft where we used white tissue paper to create these beings. It was wonderful to see the older kids helping the younger ones do the tricky part of using the pipe cleaner to create a head.
