What is a himmeli

Learning goals: exploring and creating geometrical shapes, practicing spatial awareness and using imagination

The himmeli is ancient Finnish symbol you can build and hang on the tree.

Lumi the elf robot likes shapes and patterns. Lumi wants to build one, so it can be placed in forest for the animals to see that Lumi has brought them some food.

Lumi helps the animals because during the winter it can be difficult for the animals to find food under the snow. Where would you like to hang your Himmeli and what could it represent?

Remember that your child can decide the size of the Himmeli, even small part of it is enough.
