The Simplest of Things

One of the things I rarely mention about the Girl’s and Woman’s Guides to the Wild are the projects, the hands-on crafts and games and small items that I included in the spirit of inspiring women and girls to be doers and makers. This April, Sasquatch Books will release the third book of the series, a journal and activity book for middle graders that is packed with games and drawing and writing prompts and, yes, projects. Like this little solar-powered mason jar lantern that sits on my windowsill most days but sometimes lights a summer picnic table. It’s simple, made out of reclaimed materials, and charming in a way that recalls an earlier time. Sometimes, it’s the simplest of things.
