What Does Spring Bring?

Ahhh spring!  Spring in December?  Each December I feel like it is just around the corner with January approaching, even though I know we have a long way to go.  Something about a new year makes me daydream about spring things.  What does spring bring?  How about caterpillars, babies, puppies, ponies and bunnies!  

Here is a selection of lovely toys that will welcome a little spring into the rest of winter:

Welcome to Natural Kids!

This is a blog written by a team of sellers who specialize in natural products for children.  We are a diverse bunch from all over the globe who have at least one thing in common:  we all work with natural materials in our products for children.  Oh yeah, and we're all pretty darn crafty & talented too!  Wool, wood, cotton...just simple materials direct from the Earth.  

So who are we?  
Some of us are mothers of small children.
Some of us are mothers of grown children.
Some of us make dolls, some of us make hats, some of us make toys.
Some of us have been selling our wares for many years.
Some of us are just starting to discover our talents and start selling.
Some of us work with natural materials for environmental reasons.
Some of us work with natural materials as part of the Waldorf educational philosophy.
Some of us work with natural materials because we believe they are healthier and safer.
Some of us just like working with natural materials.
Some of us sell our wares for a living.
Some of us sell our wares as a hobby.
Some of us...

Stay tuned for crafty tutorials, posts on raising natural kids, business and selling stories, and all sorts of creative, educational and fun ramblings!
