Sarah Olmsted’s book, Imagine Childhood: Exploring the World through Nature, Imagination, and Play.

Imagine yourself as a child, running through a wide open meadow, making your own magic wand from a found twig, and building forts in thick woods, and you’ve caght the spirit of Sarah Olmsted’s book, Imagine Childhood: Exploring the World through Nature, Imagination, and Play. But beyond aesthetics, Sarah says, these projects are not about what is produced in the end (although that part is fun too); they are about the process of getting there. Ahhh, this makes me happy

Imagine Childhood: Exploring the World Through Nature, Imagination, and Play by Sarah Olmsted

Imagine Childhood: Exploring the World Through Nature, Imagination, and Play by Sarah Olmsted. If we watch a young child at play, we can see that through her constant sensory/physical interaction with the environment, she gains experience and understanding of the situation, of herself, and the relationship between the two. She comes to know herself, the world, and what flows between. Heaven on Earth: a Handbook for Parents of Young Children by Sharifa Oppenheimer. The baby tossing her bowl off of the high chair over and over. The seven year old listening to her yells echo in the woods

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 points—activities that spark curiosity, an adventure, or an investigation. They’re about the process of getting there. They’re about the conversations that happen while making things together. They’re about getting to know the world inch by inch. They’re about exploring imaginary universes and running through real forests. They’re about living in childhood . . . regardless of your actual age. They’re about being a kid.

It seems like every Christmas there is a pile of activity books under the tree. I have bought my kids books about micro crafts, making little warfare weapons from office supplies, house building and more. These books end up on the family bookshelf and are really a gift to us all that enriches our life and makes for a creative year.

If I did not receive a copy of Imagine Childhood: 25 projects that spark curiosity and adventure by Sarah Olmstead, it would have been under our tree this year.

Imagine Childhood is a treatise on the importance of a slow, intentional, creative-based childhood offering specific projects and suggestions to support the thesis. Divided into three parts: nature, play and imagination, each section is filled with evocative essays, hand on projects and breath taking photographs. This book is delightful for the whole family as it easily fulfills both a parent's need for soulful, inspiring writing, and a kid's need for hands-on making!

I love how the projects range from simple to complex, yet all provide the space and tools to create a dreamy, timeless childhood. Some of the projects are classics, like making tents, sewing kites and building little boats from found natural objects. Others are more unique, like building Rube Goldberg apparatuses, constructing little adobe houses and making a 19th century magic lantern. Olmstead reframes the classics and makes them seem fresh and full of new possibilities. All the projects leave the reader with inspiration and an eagerness to spend time making and playing.

I especially appreciated that several of the projects were more involved and would be perfect for older kids; I am always on the lookout for open-ended creative projects for olders. In fact, I am sure you will see several highlighted here on the blog in the upcoming year, as my kids are excited to try some out.

I highly, highly recommend this book. It would be the perfect gift for a any family, but it especially deserves a place under your tree.

Such a beautiful book and message! The projects are very cute and adorable. Most are simple. Some you will need to visit the craft store for (unless your already a crafter!) But what I really love about the projects is that you can alter them to fit what you want to create!

Also the stories from Olmsted and her readers are super inspiring. This book really inspired me to take my family to wander in the wooded areas around our home, go on hikes, take a closer look at the garden, enjoy the wild flowers. Its wonderful!

I am a sucker for glossy arts and crafts books and this one is truly beautiful. The ideas are inspirational and provide great projects as well as jumping off places for adapting to your family/goals. The author includes introspective writing that invites you to curl up with a cup of coffee and imagine with her. People who appreciate Waldorf, Reggio Emilia, and/or seasonal/nature based activities for their house and children will find that this book dovetails nicely with their creative approach.

Not bad, but not as good as I had hoped.
