Paloma is our invited artist for 2021. Since she can’t come to Helsinki, she has prepared three videos to help families play and create together. All videos are inspired by her illustrated children’s books.

In the first video, Paloma teaches us how to make a cardboard baby to lull. Based on the book “Duerme Negrito”.

In the second, she asks us to build a mask to play the rabbit family. Based on her book “Us”.

And in the third, she invites us to make a very curious and funny toy: a thaumatrope egg / bird. Based on her book “CRACK!”

These and other Paloma books can be purchased at our Children’s Book Fair on 25.09 in Vuotalo.
