Spring and Summer Nature Activities for Waldorf Kindergartensis a wonderful resource for any Waldorf or Waldorf-inspired kindergarten.

In addition to nature activities for children—both indoors and out—this book also includes valuable background reading and advice for teachers, such as how to create your own kindergarten garden. 

All the activities in this book are fully tried and tested and based on practical experience from the Children's Nature and Garden Center in Germany.
