As the flowers and animals awaken from their winter’s sleep, the community gathers to celebrate spring with music and dancing with colorful ribbons at the May Faire.
When we approach May Faire, our classroom preparations may include painting, sowing flower seeds, and making snail buns. Some classes enjoy watching a butterfly transform from caterpillar to butterfly and then setting it free. We may dye capes with colors from the Earth, or make fairy wands. We may have a visit from Lady Spring, who bestows little packets of flower seeds, or strews petals around. She helps us welcome the spring with its burst of flowers and renewed growth. Young children may dance around a May Pole at circle time and hear songs just for the event.
