This month you may want to recall your experiences with Lantern Walk or Martinmas celebrations when telling your stories.
If you haven't experiences this for yourself there is a chance that a Waldorf school in your community is celebrating this month and would invite you to join in if you inquire.
If you have a homeschool group or a home early childhood program you can make your own Lantern Walk! Simply find a nice spot and set up some luminaries to create a path (it is very simple - just brown paper bag, sand and tea light or battery operated tea light), learn the songs, tell a story- see this link for a very nice story of St. Martin, and of course, make lanterns and you will have everything you need.
Our school has a lovely page with lantern songs (you will notice that I used some of the art from Twelve Little Tales to create our flyer :) Our music teacher is VERY amazing and brings to our school a rich and full musical experience.
The story that we tell at our school is about St. Martin but modified somewhat to accommodate our public charter school audience. The message is kindness, sharing, doing good in the world, bringing our light into the darkness that sometimes feels very powerful - but always knowing that all of our lights together are far more powerful than anything else.
If you have any questions I am very happy to answer them!
