Many Waldorf resources suggest that moving pictures are beneficial to
small children. The Children’s Year suggests watercoloring a water
scene and then adding the figures of ducks and fish, either attaching
with a paper fastener or using a tongue depressor as a “tab.” You
could also draw or paint an elephant, and make the trunk the movable
part of the picture. The possibilities are really endless- little
bunnies with flopping ears, a sky with flying birds, a garden scene
with a flying bee.
A wonderful gift would be a card with moving figures. Maybe today you
could make a few to tuck away until needed!
