A Waldorf Advent Stick

We have been counting down to Advent. A countdown to a countdown. To when we can start opening the rainbow of parcels on our beautiful Waldorf Advent Stick!

The parcels are filled with little handmade goodies and gifts from nature. The goodies and gifts will be used to tell the advent story in the Waldorf tradition. This means celebrating the mineral, plant, animal and human realms.

To start our advent journey we will place a red playsilk on a table, together with a royal blue playsilk for the sky. As we open the parcels we will place the goodies and gifts on the red playsilk. By the end of advent we will have a beautiful display telling the story of Advent.

I will be sharing our journey on Instagram and would love for you to follow along. 

Little Lorikeets’ craft group make and sell these beautiful Advent Sticks to raise money to support single parents and low income families attend their Steiner playgroup. They are keeping a list of people who would love an Advent Stick next year, so get in touch!

 Blessings, Kelly
