This charmingly illustrated seasonal treasury of nature-based crafts, baking recipes and gardening projects for the winter celebrates the country cottage lifestyle with self-sufficient and eco-friendly fun.
Locally printed on 100% recycled paper, Little Country Cottage: A Winter Treasury of Recipes, Crafts and Wisdom offers:
Easy yet delicious winter recipes and treats that introduce young readers to local and seasonal eating. From berry cookies, to hot cocoa recipes to warm up after a winter walk, the easy-to-make recipes will inspire kids to get into the kitchen.
Suggestions for using up unloved parts of produce, such as carrot tops to make a kitchen windowsill garden, demonstrate a naturally zero-waste way of living.
Accessible and fun crafts, such as making salt-dough ornaments and foraged foliage wreaths, have instructions broken down into clear steps illustrated in AnneliesDraws’ cute and wholesome style.
The seasonal gardening and growing projects, such as planting bare root berry bushes in the ground or in containers, can be done in a big back yard or on a balcony, making this eco-friendly activity book a fun resource, whether readers are based in town or country.
Woven alongside the cooking, crafting and planting projects are little snippets of seasonal information and self-sufficient wisdom from homesteading teacher Angela Fanning of Axe and Root Homestead, with a focus on enjoying and celebrating the best of what the winter season has to offer.
