Halloween at Wolbach Farm
I had a wonderful afternoon on Saturday at the "Pumpkin Patch", a family-friendly Halloween Party organized by the Sudbury Valley Trustees at Wolbach Farm. Bookmaking was just one of the many activities. I was in the barn along with candle making, a display of books and art by Gordon Morrison (he also led a drawing session outside), refreshments, and toe-tapping music from The Whiskey Boys.
Austin was the first to arrive at the bookmaking tables and we made a little accordion book with newspaper ghosts. After so many years of working with large groups of children, it was a delight to spend one-on-one time with one child. After we made the book, we spent time opening and closing the accordion and saying "Boo!"
Happy Halloween and Happy Bookmaking to all!
