eco-friendly crafting with kids
Quirky, colourful and fun projects for preschool kids and their parents to make together. Small children love crafting and creating, and it’s educational as well as enjoyable – crafting can help develop fine motor skills and teaches small children to follow instructions and work alongside someone else. Kate Lilley’s hugely popular blog, Minieco, grew out of her desire to teach her own kids to be resourceful and use what’s around them for creative play. Parents and kids alike will love the 35 bold, colourful projects featured in the book and divided into sections that include Music, Nature, Sewing, Science and Recycling Bin. The final section contains a list of 50 quick boredom busters that harassed parents can pull out of the bag in an emergency! Kate Lilley has a degree in Fine Art and a Master’s Degree in Visual Communication. She then went on to work as a web designer before becoming a Mum. Kate’s blog, Minieco, chronicles her adventures in crafting with her two young sons using inexpensive materials found around the home. Minieco has just celebrated its second birthday and currently receives 150,000 visits a month.
