BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Monday, 8 September 2014
In Waldorf education, each day of the week has an associated colour, planet and grain. Rudolf Steiner called rhythm the 'carrier of life' and by marking each day with a colour, something visual and evocative, we help young children tap into the rhythm of their days.

The colour for Monday is Violet. 

To the best of my knowledge, each of these toys has been crafted from natural materials by the artisan. You won't find any plastic, eco- or poly-felt (which are acrylic) or harmful finishes. Making these treasures safe for the kids, warm in their hands and biodegradable when their work is done.

Be sure to visit these shops (all chosen freely by me~ these are not advertisers~ that's how we roll around here!) AND to check out our years of Waldorf features here on the BTRT blog  (see the list of labels on the right hand side column) to connect with talented and conscientious artisans of wonder-full things! 
1. Gnome, by i love my OM.
3. Rosepe, by Shroompers.
4. Purple Upcycled Rabbit, by Humble Toys. 
6. Violet Butterfly, by Outside Everywhere.
7. Felt Horse, by Garden Birdie.
Enjoy ♥♥
