With the Rooted Childhood Christmas collection, you’ll receive inspiration for connecting with young children through stories, handicrafts, and hands-on activities. 

The Christmas collection is inspired by the Waldorf celebration of advent honoring the mineral kingdom, the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, and humankind during each of the four weeks of advent while still maintaining its roots in the Charlotte Mason method of education.

With a focus on simple, sweet moments at home, the Rooted Childhood Christmas collection aims to inspire, but not overwhelm. It’s a resource designed to be used for many years with the ability to pick and choose what you do this year that works with your family’s rhythm.

Who is it for? 

This product is designed for families with at least one child in the range of about 3-10 years old though the activities and projects can be enjoyed by babies all the way up to grandparents. Many families use Rooted Childhood as a supplement to their homeschool curriculum.

  • inspiration and guidelines on how to create opportunities for connection in your home during the Christmas season including Advent, St. Nicolas Day, and Three Kings’ Day

About the recipes 

The recipes in the monthly collections are designed to be simple enough for children to participate in a meaningful way. 

The recipes do not include refined sugar and most have gluten free, dairy free, and vegan options. 

Philosophy 

The Rooted Childhood Christmas Collection is NOT a secular resource. This collection is designed as a parent resource so that you are able to adjust as needed to fit your family values.

If you have loved the Rooted Childhood monthly collections, you will likely love this as well, but I want to be up front that this collection may be “too Christian” for some and “not Christian enough” for others. While this collection tells the Biblical Christmas story, it does include undertones of homage to the natural world and some bits of magic and spirituality in keeping with the style of the Rooted Childhood monthly collections.

If your family prefers a more secular approach, you may prefer to substitute the advent stories with the Waldorf-inspired stories available as a free download at www.tiptoes-lightly.net. My hope is to give families a beautiful starting point to center their Christmas rhythm with enough flexibility for families to adjust as needed.
