Feather sail and spica tail – Crafting with treasures found in natureThis one is a nose and that one is a ship: if you ever wandered through nature with children, you will know how versatile a root can be. This charmingly illustrated craft book focuses on the treasures found in nature. It invites anyone big or small to roam forests and meadows, fields and beaches to collect materials for future works of art. Back at home, thanks to the uncomplicated instructions of this book, you can start crafting, an activity that greatly benefits the development of children in various ways. Collecting, identifying, and storing natural materials helps them to perceive their natural surroundings more consciously. Threading, knotting, gluing, and cutting enhances their fine motor skills. Karoline Lawson shows us which tools and materials to use and what to be mindful of when gathering and storing raw materials. She provides templates that are easy to replicate or copy and hence can be used multiple times. The book helps to create design objects that will bring immense enduring joy. For children ages 3 to 10.Karoline Lawson: Trained fashion designer, founder of a creativity site with crafting instructions and a popular Instagram platform for crafting ideas with natural materials as well as illustrations.
