Making the Children's Year is a family resource for seasonal crafts with children. 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 for children, from papercrafting to building dens, she brings the seasonal rhythms into the home. It includes all sorts of crafts, ideas and activities, such as making nature and seasonal tables, lanterns, moving picture cards, sewing and knitting, dolls, building dens, and paper-crafting. Each seasonal craft has simple, clear and beautifully illustrated instructions. They are mostly suitable for adults to make for children, and others can be made by children of different ages. The crafts are organised by season, and the nature table ideas are very useful and practical.

From beginners to experienced crafters, this book is a gift for parents and adults seeking to make diy 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.
