Baking Bread

Today Lizzy and I made some bread using a basic bread recipe used in Waldorf schools. Waldorf schools incorporate baking bread into their weekly schedule to keep with a rhythm. Children this young don't know the days but they can follow a rhythm of weekly activities such as baking day, music day, painting day and so on. Waldorf education is an education of the head, heart and hands. Baking bread allows the child to think, feel and do. Children this young also learn by imitation and Lizzy does that very well. Today she did everything but put the bread in the oven!

Finally enjoying the bread at the end of the day! (Lizzy likes to use a fork on everything, even bread)
