Natural Kids: reverence for childhood...

reverence for childhood...

i have always felt, particularly since i have had children, a certain instinctual reverence for childhood.  it is a very important time. although young children are earthly beings, to a certain extent they are still cosmic beings...and as such, their entire bodies are as one great sensory organ. they are deeply affected by their surroundings. therefore, great care must be taken to create an environment that is nourishing to the senses and where beauty abounds.  providing imaginative and simple playthings for our children that are handcrafted from natural materials does just this. and in turn, allows them to experience a positive sensory connection and a healthy relationship with the living world around them.

here are a few beautiful and natural playthings from some of our amazing etsy artists...







yours in reverence,
