during first grade at our waldorf school, our children join together in a 'community snack' after their morning activities and before lunch. on mondays, they have muffins. on tuesdays, they have fruit. on wednesdays, they have veggies. on thursdays, they have cheese and crackers. and on fridays, they have popcorn. as such, one child's family brings snacks for all of the children in the class (and the teacher) for one week out of the year. and this week...is our week.
yesterday, we took some yummy cinnamon crumble muffins and all of the children loved them. then last night, maya and i carefully handwashed all of the little muslin bags that we are using and proceeded to fill them with grapes and strawberries for today.
there is something so very meaningful about taking the time to prepare these snacks with love and care each day (as well as packaging them in reusable/sustainable cotton muslin bags!) and knowing that our children will be sharing a healthy and nutritious snack together at school.
