Today’s giveaway is from Meagan of Whole Family Rhythms, helping you to create seasonal, weekly and daily rhythms for your family in order to nurture the wonder, beauty and light in early childhood.

WFR1

Whole Family Rhythms are a series of seasonal and monthly guides created and designed to help you maintain a steady rhythm in your home.  The rhythms include unstructured, child-led play both outdoors and indoors; early childhood stories and fingerplays; weekly bushwalking themes; daily art, handwork or creative projects; holistic baking and cooking recipes for the whole family as well as weekly caregiver meditations and projects for families of all ages and sizes.

WFR2

Meagan began educating herself on play based and natural early childhood learning over four years ago when she stumbled across some Waldorf inspired blogs that resonated with her deeply. Since then she has passionately shared her parenting journey including her transition to a TV-free home, her parenting style and beliefs and delicious holistic recipes on her blog.

“I am ever inspired by my little ones and the way they live in so presently each moment. It is sometimes difficult for us as parents to protect the magic and wonder of childhood.  Modern and Western ways of life create schedules, endless to do lists and a constant sense of multitasking that often feels unavoidable.  By being very clear about our family values and then translating these into strong rhythms for my children I believe I am also creating a strong rhythm for myself –so that I am able to slow down, stay calm and be authentically present for my children.”

WFR4

Each Seasonal Guide contains  over 70 pages including weekly oral stories and fingerplays, bushwalking themes, seasonal crafts, wet-on-wet watercolour painting, drawing and modelling activties as well as weekly caregiver meditations, monthly caregiver handwork projects and seasonal book recommendations.  Whole Family Rhythms was written and created in New South Wales, Australia however Meagan is originally from Canada in the Northern Hemisphere. She has created Guides for both the Southern and Northern Hemisphere so that no matter where you are there are relevant activities, crafts and themes to suit the holidays and season.
