Sheep to Slippers: Children Make Their Own Beautiful Wool Slippers

Green Meadow Waldorf School is only 45 minutes from Hoboken, on 11 gorgeous wooded acres! Support your child’s creativity through this two-week summer offering!

Sheep to Slippers takes place the weeks of July 27 and August 3 from 9 am to 2 pm and costs $750 (includes snacks and all materials, no lunch). Throughout the program, children will explore the magical nature of wool, our gift from the sheep, as they design and felt their very own wool slippers. Days will be spent washing and carding wool, collecting flowers and cutting vegetables to create dye baths, and observing the transformation of the fibers into a beautiful rainbow of natural hues. Each child will design and fashion an individual pair of felted wool slippers, and by the end of the two weeks everyone will have their own pair of magical wool slippers, hand-made to fit their own feet.

In addition, there will be ample time for circle, story, and puppet plays, as well as walks along our many acres of wooded trails and romps through the sprinkler in the play yard.

Children will enjoy healthy organic snacks made at Green Meadow but make sure to bring a picnic lunch from home each day.

Sheep to Slippers is led by Early Childhood Educator, Nell Rowland and takes place at the Green Meadow Waldorf School Kindergarten Building. For more information or to register, please email Mrs. Rowland at [email protected] or call her at 845.356.2514, x124.
