The Tree House Knights

Riding our dragons to the castle.

"All around the castle,
the Knight chased the dragon.
The dragon thought it was all in fun.
ROAR went the dragon!"

While at the castle we take a rest and sing "Puff the Magic Dragon"

Monday morning dress-up fun.

I'm not sure what they are....some kind of fairy pirates, I think.

After lots of dressing up and make-believe the kids decided to do some "work", collage tray, dry pouring, and making "feelings" faces in a mirror.

Monday is our baking day every week.

Today we are making Dragon Bread to celebrate Michaelmas. The kids loved kneading the bread and forming it into dragons.

Our Dragon Bread, we ate some this afternoon for snack with butter and honey. Everyone got to take their own "dragon" home to share with their families.

Our art project today was painting on a round.
