This week’s giveaway is for an adorable wooden Twig Snake from Chris of MamaRoots!
Twig snakes are a poisonous snake that live in Africa. They are beautiful snakes, very slender with green, orange and black markings on their heads and interesting ‘keyhole’ shaped pupils. Because there is no antivenom available if you are bit by one, they are greatly feared and avoided in their natural habitats.
Have no fear though, this sweet little wooden snake will not harm you! He’s a great reminder to have great respect for the wild even while appreciating and admiring their great beauty.
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. This time of year you can find us doing a lot of yarn projects so the surprise yarn balls are my current favorites!
