A Season At Home: Autumn

Inspired by Montessori and Waldorf principles A Season At Home is gentle, child-centred guide to living well in Autumn. This guide, like the others in the series, is about crafting a family rhythm and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

This collection of nature walks, recipes, crafts and songs will teach you how to fill each season with distinctive tastes, smells, sounds and celebrations that your family will return to year after year. 


A Season At Home will guide parents as they seek to create authentic opportunities for their children to question the world around them. It is perfect for parents who want to slow down and savour each season with their child. 


The ‘workload’ is deliberately light to account for the demands of working parents and children attending school. The recipes and crafts are quick and easy so they can be squeezed in on a free afternoon. There’s a small amount of hands on time from parents and plenty of scope for children to explore the ingredients and materials afterwards in their own way. The walks are adaptable and can be completed over the course of a weekend. 

It’s perfect for parents who are interested in enriching their child’s education by expanding their learning out of the academic field. 

It can be used by the whole family! I’ve been making these dishes, singing these songs and reading these books since my son was in a sling across my tummy! Since the aim is to experience, engage, enjoy and explore rather than learn facts it’s entirely up to the parent how you wish to present it.

The books are mostly suitable the under 7s.

•Nature Walks plus extended learning activities to help you and your child experience the season in practical ways.
