Description:     

First published more than twenty years ago, The Children's Year has helped generations of families rediscover the pleasures of creating rather than merely consuming. Children get enormous satisfaction from playing with something they have made, but many parents lack creative self-confidence.

This book has everything you need to get started, with more than a hundred projects for parents and children to enjoy making together. Simple, well-illustrated instructions demonstrate ways to make children's clothing, toys, and gifts, using natural materials.

Organized by seasons, the craft activities include knitted Easter chicks, spring flower fairies, summer leaf prints, cozy slippers, pumpkin lanterns, Christmas calendars, indoor play spaces, and much more. Small items such as a tooth fairy purse can be made in a short time, while larger projects can be enjoyed over a weekend or more.
