This afternoon we received an envelope from Little Learners Childcare located in Corby, Northamptonshire, England! YAY! When we researched how far away they actually are, Google tells us that we are a whopping 3,331 miles away from each other! To date, this is the furthest Twisted Strand submission!
The preschoolers also included a map, which was extremely helpful in finding where you are located on our map. We hope that we got our pin pretty close!
We received 2 wonderful notes inside the envelope.
Reading about fairies and goblins made our children very excited! Thank you for including us in your research!
We took out a second note that was written on the outside of yet another smaller envelope!
A fairy and goblin string?! We’d never heard of such a thing. The excitement and anticipation was so great that everyone started talking about fairies and goblins all at once. They begged to open the envelope…we did…and this is what we found…
These strings are amazing! We tried to photograph each of the details the best we could.
The children studied the various parts of these strings for a long time before we were ready to hang it from the branches in the classroom.
Fairies and goblins were not something that we’ve discussed before at Salt Meadow Academy, but these beautiful strings were enough provocation to start the ball rolling! We plan to sprinkle some of the fairy dust after our October break in hopes that some fairies appear. The boys are interested in the goblins and the girls want to build fairy houses! I think we have another project on the horizon here at Salt Meadow Academy. Does anyone have any tips or ideas for building fairy or goblin dwellings?
Little Learners Childcare, watch your mail! We will be writing back after our October break! We have lots of answers to your questions as well as some questions of our own that we hope you can answer! Thank you for participating in Twisted Strands!
