Welcome to Little Acorn Learning!

$6.00 off our Autumn Equinox and Michaelmas Festival E-Book!!

Posted by Little Acorn Learning on

Today is the festival of Michaelmas.  In Waldorf schools and families across the world, this special time is celebrated in so many fun and meaningful ways. A favorite way of many is to bake Dragon Bread.  We had such a fun Dragon Bread Making Photo Contest on our Facebook Page one year.  Be sure to check out the photos and get inspired.

Waldorf festivals are so beautiful.  They are not just celebrated externally but internally.  For Michaelmas, we are asked to search deep within to discover our innermost dragons and demons and pull from ourselves the courage we need to win our hardest battles.  These deep thoughts are not brought to young children in the Waldorf classroom but messages of bravery and triumph over evil are.  It's all a very beautiful spiritual process that I have always been drawn to.
To celebrate this special day, I am offering $6.00 off our Autumn Equinox and Michaelmas Festival E-Book.  Just use Coupon Code: XQNF4Y3T7WI upon checkout and as long as this particular e-book has been placed in your cart, you will receive $6.00 off the total order.

This huge 133 page book is filled with verses, fingerplays, poems, songs, crafts, meditations, book recommendations, circle times, recipes and much more to guide you in celebrating the beautiful early autumn festivals with your children.  There is something in this book for children and grown-ups of all ages:

And, the day itself marks the halfway point of winter when we can look ahead [...]
