Tiny Things, Amazing Activities

We're taking a little break from our regularly scheduled tinies today because we've had an email that's too lovely not to share.

Jackie from My Little Bookcase wrote to tell us about how inspired she had been by Ten Tiny Things, and to share some of the follow-up activities she embarked on with her daughter, Cam.

With her permission, we've posted a selection of notes and images below. But we highly recommend you click over to My Little Bookcase to see the complete story of what these adventurers got up to, all of it beautifully illustrated with step-by-step photographs.

First, make yourself a tiny collecting box ...

... then take a nature walk.

Sort the tinies; describe your treasures ...
... and get kitted up for some serious crafting!

This is just the tiniest window into what Jackie and Cam got up to over a number of days; for all the details do take a moment to visit My Little Bookcase.

Jackie also wrote a lovely review of the book, and finished her email with the comment, Congratulations on a stunning book that was nothing short of inspiring for us.

In reply, we can only say that we are equally inspired by these fantastic activities. It is incredibly satisfying to see the ideas of the book being extended and developed in such rich and interesting ways. If you've used the book as a springboard for your own adventures, why not write and tell us? We'd love to hear from you!
