Creative Creatures - Kids activity book by Donna Wilson


 Speaking of books... I have some very exciting news. This year I have been working on a kids activity book, with the publishers Kingfisher. It's not launching until Spring, but I wanted to show a sneak preview of some of 'the making of'  It's been one of my favorite projects, as I love doing these sort of shoots.

 Wilbur glove puppet- and paper finger puppets. These are a few things that you can make from the book- some are really easy and some are a but harder and involve sewing. 
 I really wanted all the spreads in the book to be shot in real life! rather than photoshopped together... so we had a lot of fun setting up little sets- the blank spaces in theses images are for the activity instructions to be placed onto.
 Behind the scenes at the theatre!
and one of my favourites:

 I had to put this in as one of the activities- make your own outfits for Charlie monkey- I remember having a lot of fun when I was young making lovely dresses for the girl you got with 'Twinkle'magazine ( showing my age now!)
Below is how the spread turned out!


It was a fantastic project to work on, and I can't wait until it comes out.  I will keep you posted.
