I took my sons out biking the other day and he said " Hey Mom, look at me - straight and the curved just like that drawing stuff we are doing".
I always believe in my heart that Waldorf influence is doing my kids good - but for them to come out and say something like that, for a 5 year old to be able to think and relate is wonderful.
Form drawing is a wonderful way to help your child with his future or current handwriting, frame of mind and over all comfort with drawing.
Here is my newest experiment with dye. Its from a Dalia flower that was dark plum in color. I used 4 huge flowers - 2 that were dried up and dead and 2 fresh. I have gotten so much color out of this pot I am thrilled. I also after getting a lot of green dye out have now started to get a purple/gray purple on silk after all that green. Yes same pot and mordant - crazy. I have hear of Saffron being able to do that with cotton and silk but this is great.
