Today we noticed that our message put out last week for the deer was still attached to the tree limb. It was soggy, but still readable. To refresh your memory the message read: “Deer we are making you a cake using deer food.”
Here are the children’s suggestions about why the message was still on display:
“Because they think we were going to make a cake for them.”
“The deer wanted to sleep more.”
“Maybe they didn’t sleep yet.”
“Maybe their legs were tired.”
Readers of our blog, any thoughts as to why this message is still around while the others seem to have mysteriously disappeared?
Today we placed another message that reads: “Deer, we’ll decorate ice cream for you using beads that you can eat.”
The children clearly have a desire to know these deer. Whether or not we ever see them again, this is a great display of empathy for the deer. Today the children happened upon a spider and a worm. Conversations about those two interesting creatures abounded. I wonder if the spider and worm are as curious about the children as the children are about them.
