Benefits of crafting plants

Crafting plants is very grateful thing to do, because you can eat everything later. Doesn’t matter how you carve them when the plants are supposed to be eaten anyway. It is very therapeutic hobby because in addition to succeeding you will have happy mind “I did it!”-feeling.

Crafting plans won’t cost you any extra, because it will embed to your normal daily cooking. It is also very easy to get children along. Even the grandchildren from my neighbor – even the boys – get very fast along and excited when they get their hands on plants.

If in your family it is difficult to get children to eat vegetables, could there be any more easy way, than to take them as part of your own hobby of carving plants. In the same time when they are carving, part of the plants gets eaten. They also learn to use the knife very well.

Crafting is a common hobby for all the family, even for the children.

What crafting plants is not

Here are some things that affect to succeeding when carving plants. These things are not blocks when you are carving the easiest models with a normal kitchen knife. These are the things that you need to know, when you start carving more advanced models.

  • it won’t be easy at start
  • it doesn’t work without proper tools
  • it doesn’t fit for persons with short nerves
  • it doesn’t fit for impatient persons

Crafting plants is fun and you can get to know the hobby by reading by blog and seeing the pictures on kaiverrakukka.fi Facebook page. I publish there photos in real-time on my own and grandchildren’s creations.

I have prepared a lot of different models, but mostly I have liked flowers. I have worked on them and already tell being professional on making those. Like with learning any other skill, I had to pass the difficulties when starting.

In the start crafting was groping or actually miserable. Even the dream of learning to craft was some time on a break. After trying very hard a few times I learned the important skills. The joy that came from that was enormous. Now you also have the opportunity to feel the same joy.

Crafting wasn’t easy for me at start. There was no publications in Finnish where I could have learned even the basics to succeed. The literature that I bought was from a trip of vacation. Translating asian text to finnish using sanakirja.org was not successful for me.

But you only have to watch the photos and read my blog to see how I accomplished the level of crafting where I am now.
