Winter Transparencies

We have coveted the beautiful transparencies that we've seen at Steiner College Bookstore and in others' blogs.  We finally learned how to make them, thanks to Jen Dimonte at  She has a very easy-to-follow tutorial on how to make these from watercolor paintings and kite paper.  Thank you, Jen!  Please be sure to follow her blog.  She posts such inspirational examples of Waldorf-inspired homeschooling.

Joey decided to make hers look like the sun setting behind the mountains (first pics show candlelight, second ones are daylight).

Ricky wanted his to look like a wintry forest.

We leave them on our table in the Dell where the sun shines through them during the day, and then light candles behind them at night.  Perfect for meditating and reflecting during this final week of the year.
