Grapat 7 Moons | Weekly Calendar
Contains 7 Nins acorns in 7 colors that are associated with each day of the week according to Waldorf pedagogy. 7 vessels and 1 round dish (18cm diameter) where the elements are contained.
Material to experience the weekly cyclic rhythm. The children will associate each day with their color, and in this way they will be able to understand the passage of the days.
Many ancient cultures believed that every day of the week had it’s own planet, colour, scent and grain. These ideas were applied by Waldorf pedagogies.

- Tuesday: Mars, red, Barley, clove.
- Wednesday: Mercury, Millet, yellow, copal.

Each Grapat piece is handmade in Spain and that makes it unique. The founders of the brand hail from a small town in the mountains of Catalunya, and were inspired by watching how their own daughter played as a small child to create this range. The way she played with natural, found objects led them to the realisation that when toys are simple, handmade and can be used to play in any number of different ways, children have the freedom to explore their own - and are much happier and more entertained as a result!
Due to being a handmade product produced from a variety of locally sourced timbers and materials, the colours and aspects may vary from piece to piece. Over time the wood may get some dents and cracks in it. We feel that this is a positive sign which means that the pieces have achieved their purpose: lots of hours of creative play!
