  1. What is the difference between Sixth Sense Language and Sixth Sense Reading and Writing on the E-book Download page?
  2. In the tea tasting video you use some kind of tea or coffee press with a screw-on lid. Where can I purchase an inexpensive press like that? (The screw-on lid seems like a great idea, especially for young children!)
  3. I searched the FAQ & didn't find anything, but just was curious to know if the "How to Knit a Unicorn" video, part one, has been an issue for anyone else, or if it's just on my end somehow. It runs fine until 10:38, then goes into FFWD mode until 12:08 & then gets stuck. I've run it on 2 different computers via different formats & have no idea how to get it to play normally.
  4. I ordered some instant download e-books and paid but I did not receive any instructions on how to download them. Can you help?
  5. Should offers to contribute video or audio files continue to be made via email or FAQ submissions?
  6. Hey Kristie, I was looking at the Calico Bean soup and am wondering about the spice packet? What is the recipe for the spice packet in the Natural Gifts for Kids to Make book? Also what is the amount of beans needed? Thanks!
  7. I just purchased your video about how to make soft molding beeswax. Could you clarify for me what type of beeswax you started with in that large block? Was it just pure beeswax? Also, do you know of a good source for pure beeswax? Thanks so much for your help!
  8. Kristie, I emailed you about a week ago regarding your molding beeswax video. Sorry to bother you again. I looked on the FAQ's page but could not find the answer to my question: I just tried making the soft molding beeswax and I am using natural, unscented soap made from vegetable oils. I grated the soap in a cheese grater but when I add it to the melted wax, it does not seem to want to melt entirely. The consistency I am left with after the wax cools is slightly softer than the pure beeswax but not, say, play-dough soft (which is what it looks like in your video). It also has small pieces of soap in it which make it hard to mold because the soap is slippery. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for all your help!
  9. Instead of gifts this year, I'd like to ask family to either purchase downloads or pay for subscriptions to Earthschooling. Is that possible? How should I suggest they do that?
  10. Which videos &/or e-books would you recommend for the parent of a toddler or pre-schooler? (My son is about to be 17 months old this week.)
  11. (last question for the day :O) i saw in the FAQs somewhere here reference to calico soup from a book called "Natural Gifts kids Can make" is this a book of yours? or someone else? either way, where might one learn more and download/purchase the book(ebook?) thanks.
  12. Is "Felting for Everyone" the same as the "Pre-Needle Felting"?
  13. I was wondering if you could tell me if there was a difference between these two documents on temperaments other than the obvious fact that the first is longer than the other? Also, the first link speaks of at the top of the lecture on this topic being available in audio and video form. I followed the link to the Waldorf channel but was unsure what the name of this lecture would be. Thanks! http://waldorfenrichment.weebly.com/temperaments.html http://www.scribd.com/doc/37959184/Summary-of-the-Four-Temperaments



  1. What is the difference between Sixth Sense Language and Sixth Sense Reading and Writing on the E-book Download page?
    Sixth Sense Language helps teach the alphabet in the Waldorf style. The second book (Sixth Sense Reading and Writing) does not teach the alphabet - it talks more about how to develop the use of language, teach grammar and start writing and reading.

  2. In the tea tasting video you use some kind of tea or coffee press with a screw-on lid. Where can I purchase an inexpensive press like that? (The screw-on lid seems like a great idea, especially for young children!)
    I actually purchased them at a local Starbucks when they were on sale because I thought they would be useful in tea-tasting workshops (where I make multiple teas). They really are handy for crafts, kids projects and workshops. I'm not big on supporting big corporations like Starbucks (although they do some nice things, too) and I don't really like their name on my cups so I would recommend getting them from: http://www.amazon.com/Bodum-16-Ounce-Travel-Coffee-Press/dp/B000F3NQG2/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1285091729&sr=8-13. They are not easy to find cheaply because they are not widespread. If you don't order this one keep your eye out every time you go to a coffee shop. Let me know if you find a cheaper one online.

    I have not heard of any problems with the video and I should have because many people have actually purchased the video so they would have complained if the video didn't work. I finally had some time to check the video myself and it works for me as well. At the point in the video you are talking about the video speeds up for a few moments to get you quickly through a step and then goes back to talking. To get through any stops in the video you may be experiencing you can move the circle at the bottom of the video to move it forward and "skip" the part that is giving you trouble. That should start things up again. Another option is to download the video and watch it on your computer (without the streaming) or on DVD. You can also use an alternate link for the video (however you cannot download from here) at: (contact me at: herbnhome@gmail.com if you have purchased the video or you are a member - I have alternate links for you).

  4. I ordered some instant download e-books and paid but I did not receive any instructions on how to download them. Can you help?
    100% of the time (so far in the past three years)the problem with this is one of the following three: 1. The payment did not go through for some reason. Please check and make sure your payment did process. Both Amazon and Paypal will send you receipts and those should be in your in-box. If you do not have those you can log into your Paypal or Amazon accounts and check for "recent purchases". 2. You paid with an e-check. Sometimes people don't realize when they pay that they paid with an e-check. This is not always clear if you use Paypal or Amazon because they rely on your stored information. If a credit card has expired the system may default to using your bank account which will register as an e-check and will take from 24-48 hours to clear. 3. The instructions from the auto-system have gone into your BULK or SPAM folder. 4. You have ordered an e-book that is not an instant download. Only e-books on the e-book page of The Waldorf Channel and videos on the video page of The Waldorf Channel are available as instant download. Because the instant download system is costly I have made the lesson blocks and curriculum available as manual download (I need to send you the files manually) to cut down on the final cost to you. To use the automatic system for these items would add 20% to the cost. On weekdays I usually send items within an hour. On weekends or on days I am ill it may take up to 8 hours to send your files. If you are in a different time zone (I am in USA CST zone) please allow for the time difference. Sometimes orders come through when I am sleeping. Let me know if none of these is the problem and I can send you the information manually. Blessings & Health, Kristie

  5. Should offers to contribute video or audio files continue to be made via email or FAQ submissions?
    I always welcome new videos! That would be wonderful! Anyone who contributes video also has the option of linking to their BLOG or business either now or in the future if they would like free promotion. You can submit these ideas/videos to: herbnhome@gmail.com

  6. Hey Kristie, I was looking at the Calico Bean soup and am wondering about the spice packet? What is the recipe for the spice packet in the Natural Gifts for Kids to Make book? Also what is the amount of beans needed? Thanks!
    Oh my! It is missing! Something must have been cut off from the recipe in the book You need to have a total of 35 TBS. of dried beans. You can expand the recipe as needed and add any beans you like that are colorful and happy (you don't need to stay restricted to what is on the list but I would stay away from lentils as they tend to discolor the entire mix once it is cooked). I gave you the amount in TBS. because this gives you more options for mixing different beans :) The spice mix is: 1 tsp. Chili Powder 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder 1 TBS. Chopped Dried Onions 1 TBS. Dried Bell Pepper (or Chives) 1/2 tsp. Oregano (or Marjorum) 1/4 tsp. Cracked Pepper Blessings & Health, Kristie

    Thank you for your purchase and support :) When you make future purchases and have questions there is a FAQs page at: http://thebearthinstitute.memberlodge.com/FAQsthat may be able to help you. I will add this question and answer to that page now (however it was not on there before so the page would not have helped this time :). You can purchase from: http://hiveharvest.com/beeswax.html I actually get mine at our local living history farms shop - they sell it at a fair price and get it from local bee-keepers. I use pure beeswax. Once I thought I had enough but didn't so I had to run down to Michael's Hobby store to get some. I don't prefer shopping there but in a pinch both Michael's and Hobby Lobby do have pure beeswax.

    We used a soft avocado soap base from a soap-making kit. I would not recommend using glycerin soap or any kind of heavy natural soap. I would recommend using a soft soap base or a soft soap - like avocado, olive oil or goat's milk soap. Something that advertises its soft side ;)

    Thank you for the support! And thank you for the little nudge. I am a bit late in posting the gift information this year (as always the holidays sneak up on me) so I just posted it now. You can direct them to: http://thebearthinstitute.memberlodge.com/gifts

  10. Which videos &/or e-books would you recommend for the parent of a toddler or pre-schooler? (My son is about to be 17 months old this week.)
    This is a good question! All these suggested books can be found at www.TheWaldorfChannel.com on the e-book page or video download page: E-books *The Temperaments and the Adult-Child Relationship (you CAN type a child before age 7 and it is helpful for all parent-child relationships to get started on this early) *Waldorf Watercolor Painting (you will start soon with one color and it is good to learn how to do this as well as see where you are going with it). *Unicorn Patterns and Designs (to make toys for the child. This pattern can also become a horse). *Waldorf Rhythm and Stages (this is the cornerstone of all Waldorf education from birth to age 12). *Organization for Homeschoolers Videos *Watercoloring with Rick Tan *Organization and the Temperaments *Early Childhood Training - Mini-Course *Storytelling Workshop *Waldorf Birthday Parties *Felting for Everyone *How to Make a Storytelling Garden *Make a Fairy Cape

    The first link is the same as the second one. I shortened the second document a bit and edited it more.
