So, we did not have time to celebrate Candlemas this year, since we were busy with the Youth Orchestra and other activities, but my daughter made us a lovely candle. Just when I am wondering why we homeschool, and why we homeschool the Waldorf way, which is so time-consuming for me, I find this on our dining table:
She made this lovely candle, then she took little pieces of watercolor paper and painted them to look old. While the paper was wet, she curled the edges so that they would be little scrolls, and printed music on them with a fountain pen. The roses and ribbons were made flattened beeswax circles and thin strips of beeswax.
Lovely, isn’t it?
