At Kasel Krafts, we are passionate about play! All that we do is devoted to designing meaningful, open ended play experiences for kids. Our products are designed to be playful and fun while also supporting children’s physical, cognitive and emotional development.
It has been said that play is the work of a child. Open ended, imaginative play is the most important learning young children can engage in. Despite the overwhelming amount of research pointing to the necessity of open ended play for children, schools continue to cut back on this kind of learning to focus almost exclusively on academics. After experiencing this firsthand in her classroom and then becoming a mom, Emily has developed a passion for play. Kasel Krafts was born out of these experiences and the desire to create.
Emily lives on Long Island with her two children, Mary Clare and Bobby, and her husband. She is simultaneously in awe of her made from scratch tiny humans and hoping for a break from mom life. She is not a picture perfect Pinterest mom, and more of a “we are all doing our best” kind of mom. Emily holds a M.S. Ed and is a fierce advocate for play based learning. She loves to play tennis, find a good sale on Shopbop and an ice cold martini.
