July Maigc Sponsors

Please support my July Magic Sponsors by browsing through their beautiful shops.

A hearty welcome to two new Magic Sponsor :

Lavender’s Blue Homeschool – offers a blog full of inspiration for holistic homeschooling in the early years and a complete Waldorf-inspired kindergarten and First Grade curriculum.

Here’s more about the kindergarten curriculum : includes all the stories, circle times (with recorded music), painting stories, beeswax modeling, and handwork projects that you need for a fabulous year (or more!) of homeschooling kindergarten.
 

Wholistika – is a global online community, educating and connecting seekers in the many traditions of well being.
Through our online courses we:
  • Connect teachers and students from around the world.
  • Offer quality content from the many diverse traditions of spiritual wholeness and holistic health, presented by respected teachers.
  • Provide holistic education that includes all dimensions of a person’s well being.

We strive for excellence in our presentation of verbal and visual material.  We want to provide you with the best possible video and audio quality, as well as beautiful imagery.  Your Wholistika experience should always be exquisite.

Welcome back …

Whole Family Rhythms – a series of seasonal and monthly guides created and designed to help Mums (and some Dads) maintain a steady rhythm in their 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. Although Whole Family Rhythms focuses primarily on the ‘early years’ the daily activities are flexible and varied enough to inspire and work for families of all ages and sizes.

The Waldorf Homeschool Handbook : Whether you are just starting to homeschool, or always wanted to, imagine this for a second… You feel confident that you are doing it right. The first steps are clear and you know exactly where to find the resources and support needed to be successful. There’s no second guessing. No confusion. No lack of focus.
Without any floundering, your Waldorf homeschooling falls into place with ease, assurance and joy.

NEST is such beautiful toy shop filled with stunning natural and Waldorf inspired toys. Modeled after the toy shoppes of Germany, at Nest one can find eco-friendly sustainably sourced heirloom wooden toys & beautiful and practical things for the home. They believe that living sustainably need not be a sacrifice. Fine woolens from Ruskovilla of Finland, beautifully handcrafted figures from Ostheimer of Germany, shaker boxes from Brent Rourke of Nova Scotia. Waldorf-inspired play and Waldorf toys & crafts for young and old. I’m LOVING these fun and colorful building blocks.

 

Christopherus Bookstore : We offer a variety of publications and audio downloads of interest not only to homeschoolers but to teachers and other parents too. We take a fresh and practical approach to Waldorf education (grounded in the work of Rudolf Steiner).

 

The Magic Onions - toys and treasures for the natural home. I make everything by hand using natural and eco-friendly materials. Bring the gorgeous texture of wool felt into your home with wonderful nature-inspired treasures like felted acorns and colorful felted garlands.

The Magic Onions has enchanting Fairy Garden kits… including this awesome Fairy House Kit, complete with a myriad of  natural building materials for fun Fairy House construction.

Woolies – is the home of heirloom quality knitted and sewn stuffed animals and dolls. Using all natural materials, always. Here in the Sunny House, we are a HUGE fan of Woolies. When my daughter, Kitty, saw the Woolies Earth Ponies a few years ago, she just had-to-have-one. She saved her pocket money, did extra chores, and bought herself Coco, her beloved Earth Pony. Coco is never far from Kitty. She reads with him, sleeps with him and cuddles him often. Two years later, Coco is still just as beautiful as the day he arrived. I highly recommend these beautiful knitted toys.

 

Gypsy Forest :  offers beautifully handcrafted goods for creative play, home, and adventuring.

Thank you for supporting our Magic Sponsors and please remember …
