Guide to Seasonal Celebration
Children eagerly look forward to celebrating festivals and enjoying the wonders of the seasonal round. This timeless sourcebook helps you explore the festivals - those feast days scattered round the year that children love. The underlying theme is a simple yet bold, suggestions - that if celebrating festivals was formerly the focus of community life, when re-created today, such celebrations will enrich family and school life.
Here are festive stories, songs, things to make, treats, simple recipes, games for fun, activities, traditions, a birthday calendar and poems to mark the seasons.
Each season has its own festival. The eighteen celebrations, such as Martinmas, Candlemas and Whitsun, have their own chapters.
There are sections on Birthdays, Hungry Teatimes, Rainy Days, Convalescence and much more.
