Festivals for children October 19 2013
I love this book! I refer to it over and over - to inspire and reconnect me with the seasons. As a child I yearned for more ritual in my life. I looked forward to any annual events or celebration that happened every year. This book offers simple ways to celebrate the year as a family. So many great ideas!
Simple, well-illustrated instructions demonstrate how to make children's clothing, toys and gifts using natural materials. Organized by seasons, the craft activities include knitted Easter chicks, spring flower fairies, summer leaf prints, cosy slippers and pumpkin lanterns, Christmas calendars and indoor 'dens'. Small toys such as a tooth fairy purse can be made in an hour or two, while bigger projects can be enjoyed over a weekend or longer.
