Making “Stone Soup” in Milano, Italia
The email below that landed in my inbox today, totally made my day! Nothing makes me happier than hearing from viewers who have found some inspiration in my videos to try something new with their children. It is the most gratifying part of my work.
Thank you so much, Nancy for sharing!
Here are my children, Alfredo (age 5) and Marialena (age 3), singing their chopping song as we made Stone Soup this morning in our home in Milan, Italy. Our family watched your blog video about Stone Soup last week, and they have been excited to try it ever since. I made Stone Soup in nursery school over thirty years ago, and remembered it fondly as we watched you and your helpers do the same. This morning, the children and I chose vegetables at our neighborhood grocery shop, and bought “pane integrale” (whole-grain bread) to accompany it fresh from our corner baker. The soup smells delicious, and we can’t wait to let Daddy taste it at supper tonight!
Thank you for taking the time to make and post the Stone Soup video. We really enjoy watching your posts, and love seeing each new one (and trying several of your good ideas).
If you missed my video on “How to Make Stone Soup with Children” the first time around, you’ll find it a couple of posts below. If you try it, let me know how it turns out and share YOUR pictures!
