A YEAR AND A DAY ~ ISSUE 9 ~ POND LIFE
Spring edition ~ Pond Life
'Croak, croak!' says the Frog, as he leaps out from the bog;
'Spring is near, I do declare, For the earth is warm and fair.'
Shoots are springing up out of the earth, birds are hopping from branch to nest, and frogs are jumping about in ponds. It can only mean one thing: Spring is here! In this issue find out what to do if a frog tries to sleep in your bed, how to find your reflection in a pond, and why a toad might rather fly than swim.
As well as getting to know some fairly froggy and soggy fairy stories, we hope that by the time you’ve read our magazine you will know how to:
- Make a mini pond
- Crystallise flowers
- Create toad skin
- Draw a willow warbler
- Make a beanbag toad
- Play leap frog
- And much more!
A Year and a Day is a Waldorf-inspired seasonal quarterly magazine for children that aims to lead children into the realm of traditional stories and out into the natural world around them through craft, artistic, movement, literacy and numeracy-based activities.
Each issue includes three full stories, fifteen story-based activities and several additional seasonally themed pages, including recipes, posters and quizzes.
Each issue has an average of forty pages, printed on high quality, uncoated paper, especially for drawing and writing on.
A Year and a Day aims to guide children into the inner world of traditional stories and out into the natural world around them.
It encourages both children and adults to use their natural capacity for imagination, creativity and invention through storytelling, painting, number work, drawing, crafting and writing.
A story is a living thing that no two people will hear or imagine in the same way.
At A Year and a Day we know that children learn in many different ways and at different paces.
That's why at A Year and a Day we think a story is the perfect place to begin a journey of discovering, learning and developing.
What age group is the magazine aimed at?
AYAAD say that it is broadly aimed at primary school aged children. Although we do know that it has very wide appeal (adults also enjoy the creative activities!) and can be enjoyed from ages 3+
