Side by Side is a new kids' craft book by Tsia Carson,
author of the popular craft book, Craftivity. The theme
of this book is that crafting alongside, and with, your
child is a wonderful way to enjoy each other's
company as well as get a glimpse into how
each other's minds work.
The book is organized into three sections:
Collaborators, Companions, and Family Field Trips.
The Collaborator section features crafts to do together
like Hand-Stamped Bookmarks and Stationery,
Pom-Pom Garland, and Child-Drawn Stuffed Monster.
The Companions section has separate projects for
the adult and child to do alongside each other but
the projects are similar in character. Some of these
crafts include handmade pillows, embroidery
and succulent gardens.
The last section, Family Field Trips, shares four craft
ideas that can be done outside, like an autumn leaf
crown, willow teepee, and Seed Self-Portraits.
The photography is gorgeous (!) and really makes you
want to do all the projects and Tsia's voice reads like
a good friend sharing great craft ideas and tips.
