HUGE E-Book! (OVER 100 pages!)
Four Full Weeks of Waldorf Crafting, Verses, Songs, Stories, Recipes, Caregiver Meditations, Adult Inner Work and Seasonal Celebrations
The Afterschool Enrichment books follow the rhythm of a weekly theme with the flexibility that teachers, homeschoolers and afterschooling parents need to enrich their children’s Waldorf learning experience at home or school. These E-Books are filled to the rim with crafts, recipes, activities, stories and inner-work suggestions and they follow a weekly theme to keep your home or school following a seasonal rhythm. They are not structured like classroom lesson plans, as they are meant to be used in addition to your older child’s regular schooling during the day or for add-on ideas to our At-Home Kindergarden Guides.
These Enrichment Guides are created to help parents, teachers and caregivers of all types create a healthy, rhythmic and peaceful home for their children. These guides may be used with children attending traditional schools, Waldorf schools, private schools, childcare centers or with homeschooled children as an enrichment tool to extend their Little Acorn ‘Learning’.
