In The Year of Knots, Chien describes how knot-making led her on a path of discovery. She shares projects, tutorials, and transformative personal stories, all aimed at inspiring readers to make knotting—and creativity in general—part of a meditative daily practice. The knots in this book are gorgeously documented step-by-step. Knotted projects abound—from wall hangings to a necklace, a dog leash, a hanging light, and more. At the heart of the story is the simple, empowering idea that a single year is all the time you need to make a life-changing creative leap.

Pint Sized Prepper Projects Book Excerpt:

This book explains nearly 30 prepper projects from how to make your own dowsing rods to quick deploy paracord bike handles. The only limits are your imagination. Use these projects as a springboard to get your kids involved in preparedness at an early age and watch them grow, explore, and innovate! You will be able to guide your kids through each project one by one or let them sift through and choose a project that works for them. Or, you can pull from these projects to enhance other teaching and learning opportunities. Each project is designed to inspire and innovate. You can scale projects up or down as needed. So whether you are looking for something for the lone home-schooler to do in his or her off-time or something to challenge your scout troop, 4-H crew, or your next campout, this book is for you. Projects are organized with a clear, concise description and include full-color photos and embedded links for easy navigation. You can see the final product up-front and then follow the simple written instructions along with full color photos and diagrams to see the project through to the end. Then, by the end of each project, you can see the types of skills developed through the projects and ways to expand and grow. Whether you are starting out on a preparedness journey as a result of a natural disaster, or you just want to introduce your kids to some survival basics, this book is a great introduction and provides several doorways to baseline preparedness. Some of the projects include how to build a pallet planter, how to create your own ice packs, how to build a rocket stove, how to make your own waterproof matches, how to build a Faraday Cage, how to work with paracord, how to make tinder and char cloth, how to start up a survival tin and how to reinvent a scarecrow as a surveillance tool and many more! Time involvement per project varies and can range from 20 minutes to several hours depending on the student and the project. Costs also vary but in many cases the projects can be completed using standard household materials or materials that can be obtained at little or no cost. Common household tools help to speed up some projects, but are not required. Some of the projects are more complex than others and will require adult supervision. And with good reason. As a parent, you can use this as a tool to engage and inspire your kids to get out and build, create, and enjoy the world they live in just a little bit more. You can also use technology to inspire instead of distract. As an E-Book, this publication will provide the inspiration to put the technology down long enough to try something out. And you can lend a hand or learn along the way. Projects can be as quick or as complex as you see fit. Since many of the projects can be scaled up or down, you can expand and take each project to a group or introduce a project at your next family function. The preparedness skills developed in this book are designed to be inherent. Students, parents, and teachers can learn from each project and if nothing else, they serve as healthy reminders of all the things to keep in mind when it comes to being prepared. This is the first volume and a second volume is in the works. The authors host a podcast called The Next Generation Show on the Prepper Broadcasting Network, which has reach around the world. This book is a compilation of 30 projects featured on the podcast in 2018 and 2019. A second volume will be released in early 2020 with an additional 30 projects.

A Year of Forest School Book Excerpt:

Following on from the bestselling_Play the Forest School Way,_here is a whole range of new games, crafts and activities to get kids developing skills and exploring the natural world all year round. Structured around the year's four seasons, each chapter is packed full of step-by-step Forest School games and activities that harmonize with the weather and what�s happening in nature at that time of year, with a nod to seasonal festivals such as Easter and Christmas. In spring, for example, you could make a mud birthday cake to celebrate Earth Day on 22 April, or (inspired by bird song) craft sistrums from sticks and bottle tops. In autumn, you could have a fun day out in the woods making leaf mobiles, playing "Creeping Commandos" and baking apples with nuts over a campfire. At Forest School, children return to the same location again and again, building a lasting connection with a specific part of the natural world, and this book in its year-round approach will bring this aspect of Forest School play to the fore. Each of the four seasonal chapters includes a description of an extended session (combining active and quieter activities plus, for some, an idea for foraging/cooking) to guide Forest School leaders planning themed days and parents looking for party inspiration.
