This book is a must-have for all mamas and papas!

And, unlike other "crafting with kids" books, you and your family will actually WANT to make the things in the book.

I bought this book looking at as a way to craft with my kids, when they got older. (Ages 5, 3 and 1) But what we actually got was a book of creative ways to connect with my kids. I hadn't been able to articulate what I felt was missing in our daily family life, I realized after skimming this book that some of what was missing was family rituals. The first week we had the book we made a basket of cloth napkins to use at dinner every night. My kids loved helping pick out fabric, and they love setting the table. Even little kids have ways of helping with these projects. My mom made the arm chair pocket for my house, I have NO IDEA how I have lived this long without it! We can't wait to do more projects, and make stuff together! Oh, and the pictures and explanations are wonderful!

You know those books that seem appealing late at night on Amazon but then completely fail to deliver once delivered to your door a week later? Thank the gods this is NOT one of those books. Every single project appeals. And will actually make you ravenous for some craft time, stat. Combine this with upcycling goodness AND family/community connection goodness, beautiful photos, humor, amazing style, and great writing.... you want this on your shelf. It's one of the best books of this sort that I've seen (and I have read them all).

If you are looking for ideas of things to make as a family, where the process engages and supports kids and adults learning this is the book. I can't say enough good things, so frankly just buy this book and see for yourself.

Format: Paperback
What a sweet and gorgeous book. First, it's FULL of amazing projects for all levels of craftiness. Most of the project materials are upcycled, which makes them infinitely affordable. The instructions are so clearly written that even absolute beginners will be able to complete them with satisfying results. And, unlike other "crafting with kids" books, you and your family will actually WANT to make the things in the book. The ideas are inspiring and you'll find yourself coming up with all sorts of ways to put your own spin on them.

Second, the ideas and suggestions for creating time and space to craft as a family are genius. This book acknowledges that it can be difficult, at best, to craft with kids. It talks you through it and helps make the whole experience satisfying, even if a project needs to be completed over several days instead of all at once. The authors help you slow down, breathe, and embrace the process. It's not just about making stuff, it's about improving family time. You'll want to read every word of this book.

This book is a must-have for all mamas and papas! The layout, design and photography rock! And the projects are fun and inspired, same kind of stuff that costs a fortune in little boutique stores that kids can learn to make themselves while learning that they don't have to BUY stuff made by exploited Chinese labor in faraway factories.
