You don't need experience to create beautiful things! This step-by-step, illustrated book gives clear instructions to get you started. Children and parents are encouraged to try all sorts of hand-work and projects related to the seasons.
Making the Children’s Year is a family resource for seasonal crafts with children. Drawing on the creative ethos of Steiner Waldorf education, this is a full-colour second edition of The Children’s Year, which has been a much-loved favourite for thirty years and which has never been out of print.
Marije Rowling has revised and rewritten the book she originally co-wrote with two friends, bringing new inspiration and ideas to a modern readership. She brings to it the eye of an artist, a parent, a grandparent and a professional. Packed with all kinds of crafts, from papercrafting to building dens, she brings the seasons into the home. From beginners to experienced crafters, this book is a gift for parents and adults seeking to make toys that will inspire children and provide an alternative to throwaway culture.
Making the Children’s Year reminds us that making things by hand brings inner and outer rewards, and encourages joy in creating and in acknowledging the rhythms of the year.
