Waldorf Family Winter Wheel
This beautiful Wooden Winter Wheel takes children and adults on a journey – ultimately to the centre, towards light and a celebration of Christmas, yule or midwinter.
The illustration captures winter, with its animals and people – but more than this it allows us space to think about the rocks beneath our feet and the plants around us. Each week welcomes a new element, minerals, rocks and bones, then plants, followed by animals and then humans.
This wheel is made from FSC sustainable plywood, 9mm thick and 295mm Diameter.
Recommended Age 3+ years. Warning! Not suitable for children under 36 months. Choking hazard due to small parts.

Stephanie Green’s company - Waldorf Family - is built on wonder. Ever since Stephanie was a child, she has appreciated being surrounded by nature, eating seasonal foods and watching the change of the seasons. She discovered her love for Waldorf handwork projects after the birth of her two wonderful children. It all started by collecting natural treasures and using them for craft projects. Nature is also Stephanie’s main source of inspiration for her creations. The passing of the seasons, colours, forms and shapes, the phases of the moon - all of nature’s characteristics are taken into consideration when Stephanie creates a new product. Her main goal is to create educational, hands-on and meaningful resources with a purpose which are treasured and loved by families over a long time and that help children as well as adults see the beauty and wonder in all things.
As the environment is close to Stephanie’s heart, she makes sure that the Waldorf Family only creates products that are made in a sustainable way from natural materials which can be returned to the earth or recycled.
