The Handmade Waldorf Days of the Week Pocket Calender is used to teach your small ones the days of the week and to understand "When is Friday?" or "How many days till my birthday?"
Kids have lots of questions and they love to ask them over and over don't they? Learning is enforced with repetition but also by expressing the answer in different ways. Words are one thing, but how about visually?
Each day the fairy sits in a pocket, the next day she moves to the next one. With this handy calender when your small ones ask, "When is Friday?" You can tell them it will be when the fairy gets to the blue pocket.
"Only 2 more pockets to go or two more days"
As your small one gets older, include the days of the week as you explain and the learning continues.
Dont' be surprised if the calender is taken over by all the other fairies in the house. They love these pockets!
The calender is approximately 35cm by 25cm. The calender fairy is about 10cm tall. This beautiful learning tool / home decor is handmade by a local BC homeschooling momma of 3, Simone Campbell.
Simone lovingly created these Waldorf-inspired treasures for her small children first and now we are lucky enough for the opportunity for open-ended, imaginative, magical play for our children, too.
Like all Waldorf-inspired toys, the calender and fairy are made of natural materials and are heirloom quality. These are the kinds of toys that grow with your children and offer endless opportunities for play and story telling full of wonder and magic.
The Calender and Fairy is made of:
- 100% wool felt for the calender and fairy body, with hand-dyed accents.
- Hand-dyed sheep locks for hair.
- Organic cotton dollskin
- Non-toxic beeswax crayon blush
- Wooden dowling
- Linen string
- Lots of love and attention in each and every stitch.
Made in Nelson, BC.
