-Each piece is handcrafted, sturdy, and lightweight.
-Materials used for the exteriors are natural wool felt scraps, Poly-thread, and a few scraps of high-quality cotton fabric.
-They are stuffed with 100% organic cotton fiber, that gives them a lovely softness and tactility that little hands crave.
-Ultra-strong neodymium magnets are sewn (not glued!) into the pieces and will also stick to metal surfaces (but they won't pinch fingers!). Would fit beautifully into a Montessori or Waldorf Classroom:)

++This item is made to order. Please allow the time stated in my shop announcement before shipment.
Your set arrives in a reusable handmade muslin drawstring bag--which can be used for storage of your item or any number of other things around your house or classroom.
LifeCycles is a section of The Handmade Classroom that focuses on presenting important ideas in ecology, botany, and meteorology to children in a colorful, simple and intriguing way. If you are simply in need of new tools for your lessons on the natural world, your set arrives as is to you and your children or students. However, since I love sharing my experiences and ideas with other educators of all kinds (yes, parents, this is you!), I would love to send you a Lesson Zine free of charge, which includes a reading list pertaining to the subject you are teaching, and an assortment of suggestions, projects and useful resources. Simply indicate if you would like one when you make your purchase in the "SEND A MESSAGE" section.
Everything is made with the utmost respect and consciousness for our beautiful planet, and natural, recycled, and repurposed materials are used whenever possible.
