    As many children gather around kitchen tables again at home rather than joining together in classrooms, we know that families are facing a challenging time.

    To help, we have gathered together a selection of our Steiner-Waldorf books to assist your at-home learning. From craft activities to encourage their creativity, to stories to spark their imagination and tailored resources to help enhance your at-home teaching. 

    We also have lots of sample activities on our blog to keep young minds and hands busy. Have you tried any of these projects yet?

    Find each of these activities below:
