(Goblin is 30 months)
Tuesday is the 1st of May: May day and the pagan festival of Beltane. I decided to do some May Day activities with Goblin. I wanted to paint us both green and make flower and vine crowns - but its been raining hard all week which put a bit of a damper on that plan. So instead I decided to make a Green Man plaque from salt dough.The idea was that this would be an activity for Goblin. But as soon as he touched the salt dough he decided that today was going to be a clean hand day. Goblin isn't usually fussed about getting his hands messy but some textures seem to freak him out a bit. Today the salt dough was doing that. So I made the green man on my own.
old Jack-o-Green dies and is born a new each year.

What fun!! You did a great job! Thanks for sharing at Sharing Saturday!! I hope you are having a fabulous week!!ReplyDelete
so interesting, i've never heard of Beltane before. so are you Pagan then, or do you just explore other beliefs? and thanks for linking up!ReplyDelete
No not pagan, I went to uni in Edinburgh and the town has a massive street procession and festival at Beltane and Sowaine so I like to do something. I want to expose Goblin to as many religions and beliefs as possible so he can understand and be tolerant. If he's interested when he's older he can explore which ever one fits him bestDelete
What fun.. that sure looks like such a fun activity!! Loved it!!ReplyDelete
