I’ve been meaning to do a book week for a while. I’ve got a little pile of lovely craft books that I’ve been meaning to share with you all.
First up is Hand in hand by Jenny Doh.
This is a book of 20 favourite projects by top parenting bloggers designed to encourage creativity and fun in the home. The projects range from papier-mache masks, stilts, and a family banner to tissue paper lanterns printed ornaments and keepsake pillows.
Each project has a clear materials and tools list then continues on with detailed photographs and instructions of what to do to make each beautiful item.
The projects are all aimed at younger children, with a bit of help from their grown-ups, so perfect for our two smalls (4 and 3 years old). I love the simplicity of the potato stamped ornaments and think they will be featuring on our tree this year! H loves to do anything creative.
It’s nice to read about other crafty mammas and their parenting experiences and feel inspired. We’ll definitely be using this book more.
The book has a nice feel to it, a good size and good quality paper. There are only 3 projects using templates and I’m afraid one of them needs enlarging. We all know I’m not a fan of having to enlarge patterns. Other than that a very nice book, fully of inspiration for you and your little ones.
