Hi there,

behind the crafty door is a small home run business that creates all things pretty, seasonal and practical. A love for knitting, crocheting, fabric and felt work has been used to create book props for internationally known children's stories since January 2017. Hence, the name of this blog.

The aim is to supply early years settings, childminders and of course parents with affordable yet quality book props to be used (under supervision) during those well loved stories children enjoy listening to. 

What a wonderful way to engage children with reading? 

Please feel welcome to comment on the posts and/or check out behind the crafty door's Facebook, Instagram and other social media pages by clicking the links on the blog sidebar.
