May Day is Lei Day

This week in celebration of May Day, the art class invited our aunties to help us make leis! Danielle and Malia shared with the class how to properly harvest, prepare and make a ti leaf lei. The keiki were taught to always ask permission before taking anything from the land, and to always put their love into their leis. We are so grateful to have had them as guests on such a special day. We ended class with a boat race with last week's boat project. The children used left over flowers to make offerings to bless the boats. Storm was our winner and he received a hand painted trophy! It was a beautiful afternoon!
