Forest Craft and Play


Luxury craft & play boxes handmade in the UK. Connected to nature with nothing for landfill.

Hi, I'm Karen, a Yorkshire mum with a passion for imaginative and creative play with anything natural. I am always looking to have a little less plastic in my life. In 2021 I started making Forest play Boxes for family, friends and guests of our holiday cottages. What you see today is the next chapter of my Forest adventure. When you open one of our Forest Play Boxes, the scent of a woodland fills the room. We hand-make and gift wrap all of our craft and play boxes in my barn at Old Forge York. The delight of unwrapping layers of loveliness will bring a smile to whoever receives this gift. Our luxury Forest Craft Boxes are filled to the brim with natural materials and parcels of vintage haberdashery, so that you can discover the joy of making keepsakes with natural fabrics, retro ribbons and buttons. Choose from peg doll Vikings, a pine cone hedgehog, a mossy frog and many more imaginative projects. Tested on four year olds and dads for stress free play. A joy to give and receive.

Our Values

Ethically sourced natural materials

As featured in The Yorkshire Post; The Lancashire Post and as the Christmas décor in a feature for Real Homes magazine October 2020.

We are a small company with mighty values. We love free creativity with nature and repurposing unusual buttons and ribbons. We believe that we have a responsibility to source all of our materials ethically, with the intention of doing no harm to the natural world or the wonderful makers who supply us. All of the Forest Play and Craft boxes started life as gifts for family and friends. They have always been handmade in Yorkshire with love and always will be.
