Here is a great tip now that the season of Waldorf Festivals is beginning. A few years ago, I went online and printed out songs, verses, recipes, etc. for each festival. I started a Festivals folder. So, now I just start at the beginning for Michaelmas and put it at the back when finished, then my next one is ready to go. I already have most of what I need, no need to re-print and it is all organized in one place!
Anyone else have Festival organizing tips? I would love to hear

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies(from The Frog Commissary Cookbook)
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups oats (rolled or "quick," but not "instant")
2 cups chocolate chips (about 12-oz.)
Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars until mixture is light in color. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the milk and the vanilla extract.In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Either by hand or with the mixer on low speed, gradually beat the flour in to the sugar mixture until just incorporated.Stir in the oats and chocolate chips by hand.Drop 1-inch balls of dough onto the cookie sheet, placing about 1 1/2 inches apart so they have room to spread.Bake at 350F for 10-13 minutes, until golden brown at the edges and light golden at the center.Cool on baking sheet for at least 1-2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.Makes 4 dozen.re is the recipe:
I have a large tub that I fill with water. The girls dunk their paper into it and let it drip off before placing onto the art board. **Then they sponge off the access water and smooth wrinkles.**
I also have them use the sponge to remove access paint on brushes. Then we relax and have fun mixing colors and creating beautiful paintings.

I was inspired after another mom made one, so here it is! It has taken awhile, but the girls love it! They are hiding their animals in the cave already.
Next came some trees... quite a challenge as I broke a needle on the pipe cleaner.
