As summer gave way to autumn, our nature table welcomed a little squirrel gathering acorns.
As we gave thanks for the bounty of the season, our nature table was full of nourishing food.
And, as the hedgehogs ready for hibernation, our nature table will continue to progress into winter.
Bella Moon is the blog of Bella Luna Toys. And Bella Luna Toys happens to be one of my very favorite on-line shops. Owner and former early childhood Waldorf educator, Sarah Baldwin, stocks her shop with thoughtful, inspiring, and beautiful Waldorf toys.
The buying season is upon us, and as you chose gifts for your little ones, I am leaving you with the wise words of Sarah…
As I’ve tried to stress to parents over the years, choosing toys is not about “good toys” vs. “bad toys.” Rather, it’s about bringing new consciousness to selecting children’s playthings. Is it beautiful? Does it feel good? Does it leave room for the imagination? Will it inspire imitative play? If you can answer yes to these questions, you will be providing your child with all the tools needed for years of healthy play!
