Grapat coloured 7 moons weekly calendar
Based on Waldorf teachings for days of the week and calendars, each day corresponds to a specific colour (and historically would have also corresponded to a planet, a scent, and a grain). Monday: moon, rice, purple or violet, jasmine. Tuesday: Mars, red, Barley, clove. Wednesday: Mercury, Millet, yellow, copal. Thursday, Jupiter, rye, orange, cedar. Friday: Venus, oats, green, rose. Saturday: Saturn, corn, indigo or blue, myrrh. Sunday: sun, wheat, white, frankincense. Children are able to understand the weekly cyclic rhythm and passage of days using this tactile calendar.
Grapat sets to inspire open-ended, imaginative, no-rules play. We think they succeed on all accounts. These simple yet adorable wooden sets allow for autonomous play, without limits. They can be used for whatever your child can dream up - there are no instructions! Handmade in Spain, each piece is unique. The small family that started it creates each part with sustainable beech or birch wood, stained with a non-toxic water-based stained, and finished with vegetable-based waxes and oils (so go ahead, give 'em a kiss!) Their workshop is in the country side, close to nature, close to forest, and we swear you can smell the trees in every box.
Please note Grapat does not allow Canadian stores to sell to the US. We can only fulfill Canadian orders.
