Today three readers will have a chance to win a copy of
Imagine Childhood: Exploring the World through Nature,
Imagination, and Play! I am also happy to be sharing
an excerpt from the book - directions for making
a Maple Leaf House from felt!
This lovely new book is authored by Sarah Olmsted, one
of the owners of Imagine Childhood - an online children's
store filled to the brim with quality toys and tools for
great adventures. If you're not already familiar with the
store then you should treat yourself and visit soon!
With the same sense of childhood magic that fills
Imagine Childhood the store, Sarah invites the
reader into the natural wonders of children's play and
imagination set against a background of the great
outdoors. Along with 25 craft projects, Sarah shares
ideas that a caregiver can use to instill in children a
love for nature and learn from it as well. The projects
cover a wide variety of ideas from mud construction
to magic wands, from animation to navigation.
This book is as much a guide to the potential
of your child's imagination and how to nurture it, as
it is a craft book. The author's reflections on her
childhood, along with others, will remind you of your
own childhood and serve as great stories to share
with, and inspire, your children.
