I would love to claim that I made these mermaids, but I did not. The little boat was made at a summer camp a few years ago by my youngest, and it often finds a place on our summer table when it's not in the small pool out back.
A spring creation for the Waldorf nature table swap group. Our task was to make something for our swap partner that represents the four elements (earth, air, fire and water) in spring. "I have heard a mother bird singing in the rain, telling all her little ones Spring has come again. I have seen a wave of green down a lovely lane, making all the hedges glad, Spring has come again. I have found a patch of ground golden in the sun, crocuses are calling out, Spring has just begun!"
