Student hoping for success with craft book

An Early Years student from University Centre South Essex has created a craft book for children.

Bryony Cullen, a first year BA (Hons) Early Years student, has put together a book called ‘Craft and Learn with Finley and Friends.’ 

The book features a crafting game to encourage children to create new things whilst learning. It teaches them about recycling, motor skills and how to craft with a step by step guide plus pictures to show the process.

Bryony would now love to get the book published. Bryony, 18, from Basildon, said: “I need to find out the correct steps to get it published but I believe it would be a great resource for play centres across Essex.”

She added: “I use it currently at my work placement to help young kids learn to craft. It teaches them lots of extra skills too but it’s still a fun activity book.”
