Overview

Children love being creative — even a toddler will show a fascination with crayons, paints, fabric and other exciting materials. But frustration can often occur when they try to realise their ideas — which is where this fantastic book comes in. Full of exciting projects for parents and children to work on together, it is aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 10 and will appeal to both boys and girls (most projects are unisex). The five chapters cover Papercraft, Recycling, Painting and Printing, Needlecraft and finally Naturecraft, tapping into children's love of using found objects. From leaf prints to finger puppets, a sock snake, a mosaic picture frame, rockets, and juggling balls there is something here for every budding crafter. Each project has step-by-step instructions and photographs and lists everything you need to get started. In addition, all projects can be completed in under an hour. There are also plenty of useful tips and features on learning through play so that parents can understand what key skills are being developed. Perfect as a gift for children or just to have for rainy days, this will give parents and children all the inspiration they need.
