Fresh Ideas for Outdoor Rooms

Fence Facelift Stock fencing goes quickly from "who cares" to "who knew" when you add inexpensive concrete finials from your local garden center. Foolproof Plants Rather than fill a difficult-to-reach planter with water-thirsty plants, go with low-maintenance succulents. Porch Flooring Mahogany is an unexpected rich-looking, easy-maintenance, and surprisingly affordable covered porch flooring option. Easy Update Interior designers know that a bit of black completes any room. Seems to work…

"Labyrinth of a Spiritual Summer" by LakehousePhotography on Etsy. A simple stone laid labyrinth but with a tree at the centre adding a nice touch.

Hands On Bible Teacher

This past Sunday we learned about the story of the conquering of Jericho. We made the "Rams" horns as our "Take Home" Activity. The horns were made before class (see previous post). During class the children added the chenille stick around the mouth piece and were allowed to color and decorate their horn any way they wanted. We also used these horns during the review game...but, more on that later. The kids LOVED these horns. They were soooo excited about getting to show their parents their…

Another perfect job by Jamie Miller who built just about everything in the 3 separate playspaces you can see. 2015 The Green Elephant Early Learning Centre, Rosebery, Sydney New South…

The labyrinth at the Chautauqua Institution lies partly in shade and partly in sun. Photo from the Chautauqua Institution. The tree almost appears to draw the labyrinth up our of the earth. A wonderful design touch.

Garden labyrinths have long history, find new popularity in Buffalo area - Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com

Labyrinths date back thousands of years and have been used in many cultures. During Medieval times, many Christian churches incorporated labyrinths into floor designs. Today garden labyrinths are getting new attention at places of worship, medical centers, conference centers, parks, colleges and even backyards. World Labyrinth Day is Saturday, May 5, so this seems a good time to introduce you to some local labyrinths: one at Unity Church in Buffalo, one at the Chautauqua Institution and one…

Walking the labyrinth

I've had enormous success with this labyrinth in the outdoor environment. Not only does it provide the challenge to balance and movement that young children desire, it is a wonderfully quiet and meditative activity. In this photo, you can see one of the four year-old girls winding her way out of the stone pathway. I've found it to be suitable work for all but the very, very young. It can even have a calming affect on the most excitable children of the group. Living in rural Mexico, finding…
