What a fantastic first day at Mystwood! Your children are sweet, imaginative, creative and full of magic! I hope they had as much fun as the instructors did!
Saturday the kids made beads out of Tree of Heaven branches, built a pathway in the woods as part of our new village and made potions with resident wizard Levon, to help open the portal into Mystwood.
The portal is now open and the size of a small keyhole. Over the next month it will be getting stronger and readying itself to fit even the tallest among us. The residents of Mystwood now know to expect us and are preparing to greet us when we come back in November; bearing gifts for our forest friends. We look forward to encountering tree spirits, fairies, dwarves, unicorn spirits and other magical creatures in the coming months.
We will be in touch about any preparations needed for our next meeting, but in the meantime please remind your children to pay attention to their dreams for messages or visions from the magical creatures of Mystwood.
We hope you have a wonderful rest of October and enjoy the magic of Fall. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your little ones.
All the best from the Mystwood team,
Mary Jane, Michaela, Zoya, Clara, Levon and Brandon
