This week’s giveaway is for an adorable wooden Sandhill Crane from Chris of MamaRoots! These gorgeous birds can often be seen out in the cranberry fields, enjoying a few treats from the plants. You can learn all about the sandhill crane on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website and even hear the sandhill crane’s call.
This little wooden version would love to hang around on your nature table. Just don’t set him too close to your cranberry and popcorn garland or he might snatch it up at night while you’re asleep!
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 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. I’m really digging all her Tomtens but my favorite right now is Dobby in a sock!
