MAG (inactive) Can't wait to start planting the garden! (30) RE: Can't wait to start planting the garden! 10 Mar 01


OK, let me introduce the musical side to this thread:

On Saturday April 28, I will be having a "Spring Fling" program at my library: Earth Day, Arbor Day, and May Day all rolled up into one. Kids from the environmental Studies program at nearby whitman College are coming to do their skit, and help with crafts. They are also building me a Maypole so kids can do the ribbon thing. We did this at my college (German roots, nturally) which shoes how far back I go.

The swing and Trun thread got me thinking about using that instead of what I was planning. We are doing simple play party circle games -- I never fail to be astounded by kids not knowing the simple moves for these dances. You know: Skip to my Lou, Round and round the Village, etc. Circle to the left, circle to the right, one player weaving in and out. Swing and turn is a ge=reat song, tho. The library's one Jean ritchie album turns out to be missing.

Any thoughts on what else to do? I have a bad habit of overpreparing for these things, and having 3x the mterial I need, or can use. Beats the opposite all to pieces.
