As an avid “maker” I have a huge stash of arts and crafts books for kids. They cover all aspects of art, science, math, activities, crafts and more, but what was missing from my library was a book on creating with and for your kids. Until now. I am very excited about the book Happy Handmade because not only did it give me a chance to collaborate with some of the most creative makers/bloggers out there, but it is a darn lovely and incredible book and finally fills the “what can we make together” gap in my collection!
Happy Handmade is for parents who like to make pretty things with their children. If you have older kids you might consider working side by side with your kids at the creative table on any number of ideas from this book. The projects can all be completed in a few hours (often less) and will add handmade whimsy to your life! I also believe in the power of DIY to get kids and adults thinking creatively and that alone is reason enough to buy this book.
