“Pleasures of Winter”

 

pleasures-of-winter-harmonyfinearts

“When there’s frost or snow on the ground, children have fun sliding, throwing snowballs and building from snow. But even when the snow is slushy and dirty, or the sky is gray, they should have interesting things to do outside so that their hearts are cheerful even when the day is cold and dreary.”
Charlotte Mason (in modern English) volume 1 page 85

I normally talk here on this blog about art and music and my love for both as part of my family life and my business. But, there is also the love I have for the great outdoors and the study of the things found there. This week I’m sharing a post from my archives that hopefully will give you some incentive to get outside even though it is the winter season. I’ve embraced cold weather nature study since moving to Oregon and have found the benefits of even a few minutes a day outside far outweigh the inconveniences of being cold.

I’m working my way through all of my posts in the archives and making sure the most valuable of posts are brought to light in 2018. This week I’d love for you to take a look at one of my favorite, simple to use art appreciation resources, Child Size Masterpieces. I reviewed these cards over a decade ago and I still feel just as strongly today that they’re worth looking at for your family.

Child Size Masterpieces (postcard size pieces of art on sturdy cardstock) are an inexpensive and effective way to allow children to see with their eyes and touch with their hands great art from the most famous of artists.

Please click over and read my updated information about this resource that I highly recommend to all families.
