Maypole


The month of May is flying by, two weeks have already past since we gathered with our Waldorf playgroup in Brooklyn's Prospect Park to celebrate our Maypole festival, welcoming in this beautiful springtime month. The section of the park where we gathered is tucked away in a small valley, full of little spots to explore,


a crumbling old fountain and overgrown landscape, with old bushes and trees, 


First we shared food on blankets in the grass, as we all wove our flower crowns,



Then it was time for the Maypole itself, where each child in the group holds a colorful ribbon attached to the pole,





and then they walk around the pole while singing songs about spring!


This celebration was extra special for us this year, as we so enjoyed sharing such beauty with our dear friends, 


With five days to go until our move, we are drinking in every moment!
