Build childhood memories by creating birthday traditions that can be revisited year after year with our Birthday Celebrations Box. We have gathered together Montessori and Waldorf traditions to help you celebrate your child’s special day and mark the passage of time. All the activities and ideas in this box have been practiced and celebrated for over 30 years in our co-founder Paula’s much loved Montessori nurseries, and we hope your family will enjoy them as much as we have enjoyed crafting them!
We suggest ordering this box in advance of your child’s birthday, to ensure you have enough time to prepare the contents.
