Today’s giveaway is from Megan 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.
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.
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.
“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.”
Available at the moment are either single Monthly Guides (March, April, May, June, July and August) or the Monthly Guides combined to create the Autumn and Winter Guides with over 70 pages including: weekly oral stories and fingerplays, bushwalking themes, seasonal crafts, wet-on-wet watercolour painting, drawing and modeling as well as weekly caregiver meditations, monthly caregiver handwork projects and seasonal book recommendations.

A Note on Hemispheres:
Whole Family Rhythms was written and created in New South Wales, Australia. All Guides are tailored towards the more subtle seasonal changes in the Southern Hemisphere- reflecting festivals, traditions and celebrations from the Southern Hemisphere’s perspective. However, If you live in the Northern Hemisphere you can still use the guides easily- just be aware that you will have to ‘translate’ differences, for example, Easter activities, crafts and recipes are found in the Autumn Guide while all things pertaining to Christmas will be found in the Summer Guide.
