We are a mother-daughter duo!
Hand Me a Craft was born from our love of doing Charlotte Mason style handicrafts while listening to great literature.
The part we didn’t like was getting everything ready! Can you relate?
We know it’s hard. You’re looking at countless websites, scrolling Pinterest, taking trips to stores, and spending lots of money to buy huge bags of supplies when all you needed was a few beads! An hour and 50 bucks later your finally walking out of the store but you’ve only won half the battle. Now you have to get home, finish up all the core lessons for the day and find time to teach yourself how to do the craft, let alone teach the kids.
What if craft time WAS a core lesson? What if it taught a skill and helped retention in other areas? Our unique literature themed kits do just that. I’ve seen my own children’s retention go up as they create and craft while listening to amazing literature. Our kits save time and money. From stacks of classic literature, we’ve picked out personal favorites for you to share with your children. We give you exactly what you need and do ALL of the prep so that your child can get started learning new handicraft skills as soon as you crack open the book.
We only include real SKILL building handicrafts. No macaroni mobiles here. We currently offer several options that all exemplify Charlotte Mason’s teachings when she said: “the human hand is a wonderful and exquisite instrument to be used in a hundred movements exacting delicacy, direction and force; every such movement is a cause of joy as it leads to the pleasure of execution and the triumph of success.” This joy comes as your child learns new skills. You CAN give them these skills, we can make it easy.
Wouldn’t it be great if you just open a box and GO!
We thought so too! We hope you enjoy making these crafts as much as we have.
