Winter Solstice Breakfast with the Robins
As the days shorten by a
few precious minutes each day, anticipating and preparing our Solstice Breakfast
brightens our energy and gives us all a happy outlook. This
simple and joyful tradition of sitting down together to eat breakfast, at a
beautifully decorated table, with quiet music in the background, is
a peaceful way to spend our last day together before our winter
The class worked in committees to plan the entire breakfast; we spent a part of each
afternoon in groups brainstorming, sharing and deciding our plans. As the following pictures show, all of the planning made the breakfast a great success!
The morning of the breakfast was quite a flurry of activity with decorating, moving
furniture around, preparing the food, preparing the menus, and arranging
the seating at the tables. Then comes the fun part...eating good food
with good friends!! There was a lot of yummy food to choose from like
pancakes, syrup, applesauce, bacon or sausage, fruit, cocoa, juice, milk and more
which was all provided by the children's families and by the teachers.
And finally, the flurry of activity starts all over again with the clean up.
