7 moons, weekly calendar – Grapat
The Grapat 7 moons, weekly calendar kit comprises of 7 Nins®-acorns in 7 colours, each for one day of the week, corresponding with those defined in the Waldorf pedagogy, as well as 7 vessels in corresponding colours to the nins® and 1 round natural wooden dish (18 cm diameter) to contain all elements. All items are crafted entirely from wood by hand.

Monday: moon, rice, purple or violet, jasmine
Tuesday: Mars, red, Barley, clove
Wednesday, Mercury, Millet, yellow, copal
Thursday, Jupiter, rye, orange, cedar
Friday: Venus, oats, green, rose
Saturday: Saturn, corn, indigo or blue, myrrh
