Description

Detailed step-by-step instructions and illustrations for making a range of lively, creative flower figures. Many of the figures are recognisable from Elsa Beskow's popular picture books, and from Sybille von Olfers' The Story of the Root Children.

Activities are organised by season, making the book ideal for decorating a nature corner or seasonal table in the home or classroom.

Reviews

'The instructions are very easy to follow, for older children with a little help. These small figures would make a great addition to seasonal tables; the Autumn section is especially nice, the toadstool children with red fly agaric hats are lovely.'
-- Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 5), Education Otherwise

If you enjoy creative craftwork this is the perfect book for you!'
-- Families, November 2009
