I've looked at the stickies and archived threads a quite a few of those links are dead or not quite what I'm looking for.<br><br>
I've got a 3 and 2 year old and am looking for books/cds/dvd's that have verses and handgames, handwork patterns/instructions and seasonal stories/celebrations.<br><br>
Something that will help me organize our activities and the rhythms of life.<br><br>
What's worked for you? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

IMO enki k movement is the best and their crafts are not bad either <a href="http://enkieducation.org" target="_blank">http://enkieducation.org</a><br>
there is also christopherus kindergarten with your 3-6 year old that has a smaller selection of circle activities <a href="http://christopherushomeschool.org" target="_blank">http://christopherushomeschool.org</a><br>
windstone press has a set of seasonal books with songs and poems<a href="http://www.novanatural.com/creativity/waldorf-materials?range=11%2C19%2C19" target="_blank">http://www.novanatural.com/creativit...e=11%2C19%2C19</a><br>

I think for that age Little Acorn Learning is best. They have two free samples on their website. However, it's something like $20 a month, which I cannot afford a full year of, but it may work for you or you can buy maybe one month of e-books a season or something.<br><br>
Also, Seasons of Joy was created by a MDC mama (annettemarie). It's similar to Little Acorn but only $15. It is less detailed and more just a conglomeration of stories/crafts/poems/songs. I have the fall and winter versions, since we stay so busy in spring and summer that I don't really have a need for them then.<br><br>
What I've done is combined Seasons of Joy with resources from A Seasonal Treasury (verses, crafts, and songs) and All Year Round (festivals and crafts), along with fingerplays that I make up each week. Then, I brainstorm seasonal awareness crafts/naturey things and order seasonal books from the library. It makes for a very rich life, although a bit mama-intensive.

I forgot to add: The Come and Follow Me Cds are great for Waldorf seasonal songs. We're listening to ours right now for the First of May! They're also great for car rides. A Child's Seasonal Treasury is a good resource--I think annettemarie just posted that she found it all online. We got ours for $6 at a used bookstore. Oh, and blogs! Very helpful. I especially love the Parenting Passageway and Frontier Dreams.
