We started our Asian projects at the invitation of parents of children at the Singapore German European School. Singapore sits just north of the Equator and so is mostly jungle: ample fodder available everywhere for an organic Earthaware project.
the class of 18 little ones was already learning about shelters and what a hut, house, castle and skyscraper are so we decided what better than to make a jungle igloo from the sticks and branches we gathered.
We worked for a few hours then then went inside to draw what we had made, adding sun and trees and animals and boys and girls to the pictures as we went.
Once we all drew our own special version of the igloo we made songs and sang about what we learned that morning.
as always the best is the playtime and sharing!
