Crafts require various amounts of parental involvement. If you have a young child, they will work with you as you create magic together. An older child might need you to help them with a few aspects of each craft.

The Magic Craft Box is a such a lovely gift for little loved ones who live far away from you. If you are a Grandparent, what better gift for your grandchildren than a Magic Craft Box to arrive each season, filled with delightful, nature-inspired, crafts for them to enjoy with your own children. What a lovely talking point for you to have with them as they tell you what magical treasures they have made from your gift that keeps on giving.

As you know from reading The Magic Onion, I am inspired by Mother Nature and all of the beautiful treasures she bestows upon us. I use nature and natural materials as much as I can in my craft kits. There is something magical that happens when we work with natural elements. It’s as if our spirits connect with the energy of the Earth to open up our creative beings and set our imaginations free… you will see this in the sparkling eyes of  your children and the innocent enchantment on their faces as they work with feathers, wool or silk. It is this experience that is the magic that is hidden in each Magic Craft Box.

“My goodness, this is such a brilliant concept. I can’t tell which craft my children enjoyed the most! Opening their Magic Craft Boxes was such an experience for them… it made even my 11 year old start to believe in fairies again! My 3 year old loved being part of making the crafts too. All around, this was a wonderful experience for my whole family. I have already purchased our One Year Subscription – keep the magic coming!” – Denise

Let’s Make a Tin Can Lantern

Making a lantern is a fun way to talk about the changing seasons with your child. One way to help your children notice and experience seasonal changes is through the things you craft together. When you work together, curiosity is inevitable, questions arise, learning is easy. As autumn makes the evenings come sooner and sooner a lantern is a meaningful project for early autumn crafting. Boys and girls love the physical nature of this project. They feel reverence in working with ‘real’ tools like a nail and hammer. Of all the lanterns we’ve made recently, this tin lantern was Teddy’s favorite.

Save up a tin can and have some lantern fun.

You’ll need :

  1. a tin can
  2. a nail and a hammer
  3. a length of wire for the lantern handle
  4. a pair of pliers

Use the nail and hammer to make holes in the tin can. You can get fancy with the patterns of the holes… or you can have random holes like Teddy preferred.

Punch a hole just below the rim of the tin on either side for the wire handle to pass through. Thread and secure the wire handle.

Place a tea light inside the tin and light it as soon as it gets dark. Your child will be so proud of his cool tin lantern.

Here’s a lovely traditional Waldorf song that captures the joy a lantern can elicit :

Glimmer, lantern, glimmer…

little stars a-shimmer

Over meadow, moor and dale

Flitter flutter elfin veil.

Glimmer, lantern, glimmer…

Little stars a-shimmer.

Over rock and stock and stone,

Wander tripping little gnome.
