Edit: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to everyone that participated!
WHERE Michelle and I chose to buy toys for the wee ones is every bit as important to us as WHAT we buy the children. We seek out shops and products that carry the finest materials and ones that are mindful of the environment. For that reason, we are THRILLED to share this awesome giveaway, from one of our favorite producers of wonderful products… Sarah’s Silks.
Sarah and her family want to get the word out about how growing all the mulberry trees in China (trees necessary for the silk worm) is helping the pollution problem there. Also, no chemicals can be used on the trees as the silk caterpillars die very easily. Hundreds of small family farms are growing the silk caterpillars and feeding them leaves from the trees! They took a trip to China and found the whole process amazing! You can feel good about buying Sarah’s Silks… wonderful toys for dramatic play and environmentally friendly! Sarah has an article in this issue of Living Crafts on Raising Silk Worms. While the supply lasts, she is also giving away free silk worms to anyone that has immediate access to mulberry leaves. The little buggers hatch fast and are very hungry! Wouldn’t this be a great project to do with the wee ones? Unfortunately, we don’t have any in the area, but if you do, you might want to consider this nature study.
Now… onto the giveaway 🙂 Can you image anything lovelier than receiving an Easter Basket stuffed with yummies from Sarah’s Silks this spring? I can’t. Wait to you hear what goodies are included in this gift basket!
