The Perpetual Calendar contains 12 Nins® in 12 colours according to the Waldorf pedagogy, both to determine the month and its season of the year: one bowl of natural beech wood, two natural beech wood cubes with the numbers of the days printed, and a platform distributed in four sections that determine the seasons, stamped with the months of the year.
A delightful and educational way for children to learn and identify the passage of time through the days, months and seasons of the year. Children can learn and gain an understanding using colour & number recognition and learning through play.
The Nins can be played with on their own in open ended and imaginative play. As well as additional loose/natural parts being used with the calendar and placed within the months of the year to reflect those particular events and seasons that fall upon them. You could also place an item within the central bowl to honour an important event such as birthdays or celebrations.
Can also be paired with the Grapat 12 Coloured Rings (available separately) which perfectly match the 12 Nins included within the Calendar.
