BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Tuesday, 22 June 2010

In Waldorf education, each day of the week has an associated colour, planet and grain.

Over the next while I am going to feature handmade, natural items that would be wonderful to help mark the rhythm of the week at home with your little ones.  Many of the items come from members of Etsy's Natural Kids Team (search: naturalkids team).


Tuesday is Red. For today's picks, I am using a theme drawn from Elsa Beskow's sweet and simple story: Woody, Hazel & Little Pip.  This is the story of two young children who go on a grand adventure, make a new friend and are eventually brought home safely by a kindly red squirrel.
(and yes, I realize not all my squirrels are red, but they sure are cute!)

An adorable (and eco-friendly!) woodland mobile for baby by Pink Perch:

Just Hatched has a sweet set of four woodland animals:
How about a red squirrel pillow from Manitoba artisan Marathon1981?
Smooth and chewable! From Little Sapling:
And inspired by another Beskow story, a playset by Boridolls:
And just because this one made me giggle~ it is wonderfully done!!  'Battle Cry' ACEO by BeaumontStudio:
