MAKING THE CHILDREN'S YEAR ~ MARIJE ROWLING
Making the Children's Year: Seasonal Waldorf Crafts with children
Thirty years since its original publication, The Children's Year has been a much-loved book that has never been out of print. Now called Making the Children's Year, with colour illustrations and new projects that bring it up to date, it will appeal to a new generation of people keen to engage children in creative play, the seasons and the joy of handcrafting.
Marije Rowling has revised and rewritten the book she originally co-wrote with two friends, bringing new inspiration and ideas to a modern readership. She brings to it the eye of an artist, a parent, a grandparent and a professional. Packed with all kinds of crafts, from paper crafting to building dens, she brings the seasons into the home. From beginners to experienced crafters, this book is a gift for parents and adults seeking to make toys that will inspire children and provide an alternative to throwaway culture.
Making the Children’s Year reminds us that making things by hand brings inner and outer rewards, and encourages joy in creating and in acknowledging the rhythms of the year.
