Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Corporate art director-turned-full-time blogger Ganaden is a lifelong crafter who shares her passion for handmade, ecofriendly ideas with her daughter. In this collection, she presents a variety of easy projects for moms to share with their children. The focus is on earth-friendly crafts, and natural and upcycled components are a major feature-think gathered and foraged pinecones, sticks, and rocks-and since these are children's crafts, they're generally quick and easy. Ganaden acknowledges girls' wide-ranging tastes with arrangements that appeal to the feminine and frilly set (cute worry dolls and floral nature crowns) as well as more rough-and-tumble girls (a bow-and-arrow set, a nature scavenger hunt), along with crowd-pleasers like salt dough and dream catchers. A few of the crafts, such as the "peaceful mind globe," a glitter-and-glycerine-filled snow globe that girls can shake as a stress reliever, seem to be tailored toward moms who want to raise their daughters' self-esteem. VERDICT Moms looking for interesting projects to make with their grade-school daughters will enjoy this compendium of crafts to share." - Library Journal
