Whole Family Rhythms {giveaway}

rhythmsbannerToday’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. 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.

meaganIn Meagan’s words,
“I am ever inspired by my little ones and the way they live into each moment with very little regard for the past or future. It is so very 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. My hope is that by being very clear about our family values and then translating these into strong rhythms for my children, I am also creating a strong rhythm for myself – empowering me to slow down, and to be present, calm and authentic for my children.”

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. The guides are available as a complete set including all four seasons, as single season packages, or even just monthly if you’d like to try a single month.

  1. This made me happy just reading it I can’t imagine how wonderful it would be to receive.

  2. I can see from the pictures that Meagan is inspired by the Waldorf school. It resonates within me, since I went to a waldorf school as a child. Lovely warm feeling it gives.

  3. oh wow, I would love the Southern Hemisphere Guide. It´s not often someone offers both and being from Brazil, I would find this so helpful!

  4. This is a wonderful idea for families.

  16. This looks so inspiring and beautiful – would love to win!

  17. This looks so lovely! I find it exhausting to be always coming up with activities for the kids on my own (and then doing them- I use too much energy *thinking* about what to do that by the time I get to it I’m done!), but I would love to follow a guide like this. I’m a big proponent of free play, but it is nice to do some organized activities especially at this time of the year!
