Welcome to The Treasure Baskets. My name is Cassandra and I am the founder of this business and the mother of three amazing children and grandmother to six beautiful grandchildren. I have been an early childhood educator for about 16 years and live in a small seaside town on the west coast of New Zealand.
As a teacher of young children and also being passionate about the environment, I wanted to provide alternatives to mass produced plastic learning aides, along with ideas for supporting children’s learning through open ended play and exploration.
The purpose of this website is to promote the use of natural and recycled materials as an alternative to other teaching resources, and to highlight the benefits of these for children’s learning and development.
I offer affordable, handmade products (within New Zealand) for parents and teachers as well as sharing ideas on how to create their own resources and ways in which they can be used to extend children’s learning opportunities.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
