Creative Pathways

Activities that Strengthen the Child's Cognitive Forces

Elizabeth Auer



I really, really like this book.  It has just about every activity and craft I’ve ever witnessed at a Waldorf school, along with lovely pencil drawings, color painting examples, and instructions for stage craft, upright loom building, guidance for main lesson illustrations and content, as well as its core grade-by-grade discussion of activities to integrate into the lessons.

There is a vigor and a joy to it that will inspire and energize any teacher or parent who uses it as a resource.  Whether you are teaching in a classroom, teaching at home, or simply want to integrate these activities into your child’s life, this is a book to love.  Thank you, Elizabeth Auer!

Grades 1 thru 8.

  1. How many pages does this have?
    Thank you!


    1. It is large format (approx. 8.5″ x 11″), 94 pages, around 200 illustrations.


    2. With only 94 pages, does it teach how to actually DO these crafts, or does it just list what to do? Thank you!


      1. Thanks for asking. No, it is not a how-to manual, though some techniques are illustrated. But there is an assumption that the basics of a given craft are already known by the teacher.
