Families looking for nature-based fun away from phones and screens will adore this wholesome children’s collection of cooking, crafting and gardening projects, locally printed on 100% recycled paper. In the Little Country Cottage: A Spring Treasury of Recipes, Crafts and Wisdom, young readers can try their hand at various spring themed projects as well as learn interesting seasonal wisdom and nature-related facts along the way. Packed with fun ideas to keep kids occupied during holidays or at weekends, readers can discover the joy of sowing seedlings, learn how to care for baby chicks, brew dandelion tea and craft windchimes from foraged materials.
The activities from author and homesteading teacher Angela Fanning include eco-friendly practices, such as recycling or reusing materials, and encourage readers to respect nature. All the activities are broken down into steps, clearly explained and accompanied by AnneliesDraws’ adorably wholesome illustrations, and will suit any space, as they will work equally well on windowsills as in gardens.
