This is Shanti's magical nature table...
Today is Summer Solstice...the longest day and shortest night of the year! The Solstice is a festival of fire...many people in the past, and today celebrate Solstice by lighting a bonfire. The bonfire is reminiscent of the heat of the summer sun. Our ancestors for thousands of years, understood the importance of the sun...the sun played an essential role in helping their crops to grow, and we all know, a bad crop meant certain starvation for some. Today as we prepare to celebrate the Solstice, I wanted to share some images of our nature tables, and the last very simple craft we did to prepare for this day.
We painted suns together...to hang over our nature tables...such an easy and sweet craft, (you don't even have to use watercolours...just paint a sun in honor of Solstice day!). Today, thank the sun in all her radiant glory!
Now we have some serious celebrating to do!
Have a lovely Solstice Day!!!
