The kids get to put on costumes and enjoy a sugary, carbonated goûter (afternoon tea).
The younger maternelle students (aged 3-5) don't leave the school grounds; parents crowd into the schoolyard to watch their small parade and songs.
French mummy shoes seen at my daughter's school.
The primaire kids parade through the streets before arriving at the village square.
There was music and bags of confetti
and bright ladies on stilts.
The confetti war is still my favourite - 300 kids attacking each other and their teachers - amazing.
A little confusing if you're only 2 years old, though.
Other goings-on around the craft room:
Long strips to finish off the backing for the Flocking Chevrons quilt.
And playing around with the filigree beads and some floss.
Hope the week is being kind to you. A bientot!
