BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Saturday, 25 June 2011
Waldorf education emphasizes the importance of rhythm in the life of young children~ it regulates them and helps them to create meaning.  To aid in this process, each day of the week is assigned a colour, and the colour for Saturday is blue.

Be sure to check out our other Waldorf  weekday features (see the topic list on the lower right column) for lots of ideas to incorporate colour and rhythm into your days.

This collection features some wonderful blue creatures in a variety of natural materials.... from all around the world!  And I must say, lest you think finding a great collection of natural toys is easy... it isn't! Weeding out the polyfil stuffing, the plastic bits, the acrylic felt... is actually a tough job, whew! Another reason to start your search with Etsy's Natural Kids team!
