In this kit children will create their very own hand crafted journal. Your child will not only feel satisfaction for making their own book and personalizing it however they would like, but it will also make a great space for them to store memories.

Check out the Bookbinding instructional video.

Teddy Bears

A hands-on activity, children will love making their very own teddy bear. Many different skills are involved in the creation of this toy, with a final result that is oh, so satisfying.

Check out the Teddy Bear instructional video.

Woodland Fairies and toadstools

Fairies and elves were both good and bad, pranksters and helpful. They were the guardians of nature, woodland animals and gardens. They were helpful if you respected them, but caused problems when you didn’t. In this kit children will create their own fairy out of a variety of materials.
