 Lets Pretend   Camping!If you're not all that fond of "The Great Outdoors", how about set up a camping experience indoors!  Turn off the TV, set up the "tent" and get ready to make memories. You can use a real tent for your sleeping quarters, or create one of your own!  A couple chairs and some large sheets or blankets are all you need to create the illusion of a tent.  Grab a couple flashlights and books, tell some ghost stories, make shadow puppets and enjoy some one-on-one time with the kids. What about the campfire, you ask?  Below is a fun craft that is perfect for pretend play!  Some toilet paper rolls, cotton balls and tissue paper make for a realistic mini campfire you can sit around to make your camp out even more fun! Supplies: 6 cardboard tubes brown acrylic or poster paint large Read more

November a Month of Games

Published December 19, 2007        by Nicole

For many of us, November is the month of football-either piling on warm clothes, opening your coffee gift basket and making some hot coffee, and joining the throng on the bleachers or collapsing in a chair in front of the TV. What else is there to watch over Thanksgiving? For the Romans, November was an equally frenetic sports month in which athletes paraded their finely honed skills before crowds of cheering, avid fans shouting on their favorite team or champion. One difference is that the ancient Roman athletes performed before the gods and goddesses. Sports were a component of the religious ritual - the Ludi dedicated in November to Jupiter. An ancient author, Dionysus of Halicarnassus, leaves us a colorful description of the parade and the athletic games. Young men, most likely of leading Read more

November Competition, the Agony of Struggle

For many, especially women, confrontation through direct competition is uncomfortable and best avoided. We too quickly repress our drive to win, our aggressive and competitive side. Yet, in antiquity, there were models of competitive women who were honored and esteemed for their physical prowess. In myth, Atalanta wrestled, hunted, and required her suitors to compete against her in a foot race.

"Tatia directed a gymnasium for women," "My lovely sister Nikegora won the girl's race," and "Kyniska won the chariot race." Every four years, at Olympia, sixteen women together with female assistants put on the games to the goddess Hera, the Heraia. "Here is the method of running. The Read more
