Peeking Inside the Magical Elves Workshop at Waldorf School of Orange County Winter Festival. Saturday, December 7, 2013
Saturday 1-5pm, December 7, 2013.
Our Waldorf School of Orange County celebrated its annual Winter Festival this past weekend. It was a magical and beautiful community event for all.
The Elves’ Workshop was one of the many attractions at our Winter Festival. Wonderful handcrafted treasures were made by our community for especially the younger students to purchase as gifts for their loved ones. Each child is allowed to shop for these handmade treasures with a maximum of 20 tickets (50 cents per ticket).
This booth is for children only, without parental accompaniment. The 7th Grade students (elves) assist the children through their purchase selection and gift wrapping. It was a lot (I mean A LOT) of work for our handwork teacher Christine (and many unnamed elves), but when you see the sense of awe and wonderment in the children’s faces, it’s all worth it! We sold all 800 handmade goodies within 2 1/2 hours of the Winter Festival opening!
Thank you Christine Newell and the many hands that make this a magical memory for many children. – Jzin

Simple painted wooden peg dolls. These are itty bitty very tiny ones made by Renuka. My 9 year old girl picked two for herself.
My children made these Winter Gnomes (with my help) …

Guarded from harm
Cared for by angels
Here stand we
Loving and strong
Truthful and good
Alena, like many other elves, stayed up late to lovingly prepare these handmade treasures for the children for this magical day.
A very little one at the gift wrapping counter with his treasures.
Heather’s needle-felted bird found a home in the heart of this little one.
Thank you to Christine Newell and the many, many elves out there who worked hard to make our Elves Workshop 2013 a magical experience to remember for our children! – Jzin
