Does anyone on here own Creative Play for your Toddler by Christopher Clouder? I'm thinking of getting it, but wanted some real mama reviews. I wish there was a place online where I could sample some pages.

Let me know what you think if you have it!

I own it and the infant one. As someone new to Waldorf, I do like the ideas and easy to make toys in both books. I don't have it near me right now, but if no one else posts, I can post a table of contents later if you'd like

I have it out from the library as well as the baby one! Last night I made one of the floor puppets, out of wool felt, a Waldorf doll style head, and stuffed with sheep's wool. It's sooo beautiful! I'm just finishing another tonight.

While I was doing that, my husband made the log train! Made from pieces of logs with the bark on, like tree blocks. So cute.

I'm planning on making some more stuff out of it too.

Totally get the book, it's great!


Here's what else there is:
knitted rabbits
Waldorf doll and clothes
doll swing
doll sling
felt horses (I'm making these too!)
riding horse (horse head with stick)
tree blocks
basic doll house
felt magnetic fishing game
felt crowns (making these too!)
finger puppets (and these!)
standing puppets (what I made)
marionettes
felt balls and a few more things but have to go help with bathtime now!

I have both of them and really love them too. The photos are beautiful (I'm a sucker for project photos), and my kids love looking through them and planning what we should make. We have made loads of the roving balls from the Baby book, and made each of the kids a hobby horse from the Toddler book for Christmas last year, as well as a few small projects here and there.

Busy mama to my three little lads!

I have it. The photos are beautiful and inspiring. A lot of the projects in the book do overlap projects found in other Waldorf books.
