In this set, I share our family's favorite songs, story titles, craft ideas, foods, and family activity ideas for Advent. You'll receive links to download the 14-page pdf and 7 mp3 files immediately (instrumental only). To access video of me singing and playing every song, you'll need to become a site member. I'll set your permissions within 24 hours and confirm access to the video here on the site.
This collection includes seven songs. One for each of the four weeks of Advent and inspired by Rudolf Steiner's Advent poem based on the Four Kingdoms - stones, plants, beasts, and humankind - plus three bonus songs. All songs are arranged to be played on a diatonic instrument - C flute or soprano recorder.
