Overview

With 52 weeks of fantastic art projects using easy-to-find, everyday materials, Art with Anything provides a year of creativity, imagination, and fun for children ages 4-10!

Organized alphabetically by material, each week features one everyday material (address labels, fabric scraps, leaves, rocks) and provides five days of unique activities, increasing in complexity with each day. Art with Anything uses materials like buttons, cardboard, hole-punch dots, junk mail, masking tape, sandpaper, and salt, which encourages recycling and reusing!

Children will love making “Glitter Photo Jars” or working on “Shake-It-Up-Bag Paintings,” and projects like “Family Finger Puppets” and “Fluff-N-Puff Mobiles” will keep them entertained for hours and stretch their imaginations.

Whether at home or at school, in child care or an after-school program, exploring the process of creating art is one of the most compelling ways children learn, and Art with Anything keeps children learning creatively all year long!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Here’s a book that’s bound to keep kids constructively occupied and entertained this summer or the entire year!.." - Good Reads with Ronna, LAParent.com

"This book is a real 'WOW' for anyone seeking art activities for children ages 4-10." - Shuffle Spindle & Dyepot

"This lively compendium of family-friendly art activities [is] highly recommended as a resource for parents...and caretakers." - The Midwest Book Review

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Kids who want to make their own masks and costumes for Halloween or adults wondering what to do with youngsters on a rainy day might take a look at these art projects. Included are easy-to-follow instructions for 52 craft projects (and variations) that use everyday materials such as cans, buttons, bottle caps, paper plates and stones. Half the fun for young artists will be searching for the "ingredients" in house and yard. Children might create masks on a stick, stone stack sculptures, sandpaper rubbings, sock puppets, yarn weavings and sponge and foam prints. A great way to encourage kids to (literally) find inspiration around them. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum
