For children, potential is limitless, curiosity is an electrical current, and every moment is open to the possibility of the unexpected. Day-to-day life is filled with adventure. Road blocks are invitations to try new routes. And the world is vast and expansive. This book is a celebration of childhood through the crafts and activities that invite wonder and play. The twenty-five projects and activities in this book are meant to speak to the way children engage with the world. These projects are not about what is produced in the end (although that part is fun too) but rather they are stepping-off pointsactivities that spark curiosity, an adventure, or an investigation. Theyre about the process of getting there. Theyre about the conversations that happen while making things together. Theyre about getting to know the world inch by inch. Theyre about exploring imaginary universes and running through real forests. Theyre about living in childhood . . . regardless of your actual age. Theyre about being a kid.
