The Waldorf School at Moraine Farm has gathered together holiday gift and activity ideas, by age, for Waldorf parents looking to keep the holidays focused on giving, peace and goodwill.
Show your children, and remind yourself, what the holidays are really about. Remember the motto “comfort and joy?” Try to manifest those sentiments. Giving to someone else, connecting and giving thanks are what make the holidays special.
Suggestions include creating a gratitude jar, taking holiday activities beyond your own home to give joy to others, and giving simply gifts that spark creativity in little ones and critical thinking in older children.
