We had our Fall Play at preschool just before Thanksgiving break. The fairies, dragons, birds and gnomes were preparing for their long winter nap by making their houses beautiful and cozy. They were nestling in with lots of leaves and foliage to make the beds for themselves and their babies. We played Pachelbel Canon and danced around the forest trees placing leaves and our animal babies in just the right places to stay warm for the coming rains and snow.
The children made up their own dance and movements and all the forest creatures took part. It was a busy and bustling time of unfolding a beautiful fall scene. By the time the whole forest was decorated and painted with color it was time to go back to sleep for the winter hibernation. We will wake up again in the spring!
