Imagine Childhood Giveaway and new Book!

“Childhood is more than just a stage in our path to adulthood, it’s the time in our lives when our imaginations have no limits.  It’s the time when we learn how to be inventors. It’s the time when we watch clouds and butterflies with wonder and admiration.  It’s the time when we fall in love with the world.  Childhood is not just a developmental stage, it’s the development of a perspective, and quite a beautiful one at that.  In 2008 we established to support and nurture the growth of that perspective.  Imagine Childhood is a family owned and operated company offering high quality environmentally conscious toys, activities and stories that encourage exploration, creativity, and open-ended unstructured play.”  Sarah Olmstead, Imagine Childhood

Sarah Olmstead has a new book out (which will be reviewed on our blog soon) with the same name as her store:  IMAGINE CHILDHOOD: Exploring the World Through Nature, Imagination, and Play- 25 Projects that spark curiosity and adventure.  This book is a part of the giveaway on this post, but you can also purchase signed copies on her website.  Here is her blog post on behind the scenes work for the project.

    We recently discovered Oak Meadow Homeschooling Curriculum and decided to use it with our soon to be first grader. When I found out they learn to knit in first grade, I panicked! I checked out the site and saw a little hand with yarn labeled finger knitting (a simple way to introduce the knitting concept to my daughter). It inspired me to teach her right away. It took her all of 5 minutes to figure it out after watching a video last night and she has since made 2 bracelets for her friends, one for her sister, one for me, and one for herself. She LOVES it!! It makes me all the more confident that Oak Meadow is the curriculum for us!
