It’s time for another fun giveaway with Chris at Mamaroots! We have a variety of her beautiful handmade wooden toys and they all show signs of lots of love and use. This little hummingbird is a sweet replica of the real thing that will soon be flying south for the winter here. He can be kept on your nature table as a reminder of how fleeting time is and to remember to stop and savor the joys in life while we have them or make a wonderful companion to your child(ren)’s wooden toy collection.
Chris hand makes all her wooden toys, sands them down, hand stamps or wood burns them, paints them with all natural watercolors and seals them with a all natural homemade sealer to give them a softly buffed shine that delights both children and adults alike. Her collections often feature characters from story books, Waldorf and Montessori inspired learning tools (i absolutely love the plant life cycle set!) and small journals that are perfect for younger kids learning to write and draw nature journal style. All these items and more can be found in her fun etsy shop. You’ll find all sorts of inspiration for storytelling, birthday celebrations, play time, nature tables and more.
