helping make this a special celebration. He helped get out the honey (makes me wish we had bees & fresh honey of our own), mix the ingredients, and go searching for wild violets. At at his 2yo level, I believe this is the beginning of learning the handicraft of baking. It's a slow learning process. It has to start somewhere.
One of my favorite parts of our party was that Pooh even sat at the table with us and in a two-year-old way, Pooh told us "Hey! Don't eat all my cake!"
Honestly this was my first time reading the entire original Winnie-the-Pooh story. I had only read parts before. After working at Walt Disney World for a semester in college I had the movie version of Pooh in my head. After all dont they own Pooh!? Sigh. The original is so much better! Charlotte Mason was right. Leave behind the twaddle and start with the
good stuff. Its worth it!
