Overview

Boredom is not an option with this engaging collection of more than 70 entertaining craft projects and ideas.

Hey, rainy days happen. And when they do, Make Fun Stuff! comes to the rescue of parents everywhere, providing them with more than 70 awesome crafting projects (like making a pop-up 3-D card) and delicious, clever recipes (like cooking up taffy from scratch). Best of all, the activities are shown in vivid, colorful, and cheeky step-by-step art with short instructions that make completing them a snap—and a blast!
Culled from the creative minds of two zany moms who still remember what it’s like to be a kid, Make Fun Stuff! is the perfect answer to summertime boredom. In its cheerful and colorful pages, you’ll find DIY activities that range from old favorites (marbelize paper, anyone?) to quirky and stylish crafts (such as making a messenger bag out of comic books) to low-tech adventures (like rigging up simple speakers out of used cereal boxes).

Meet the Author

Sarah Hines Stephens first learned to cook in order to get out of doing the dishes, and she still prefers making messes to cleaning them. One of three creative sisters, Sarah hails from generations of do-it-yourselfers: quilters, artists, writers, and gardeners. When Sarah is not facilitating semiexplosive science experiments and kid-friendly crafts, she writes books for kids. She has written more than sixty books, some for kid-friendly brands such as Gymboree and Scholastic. She lives with her husband and two children in a home filled with glitter, fabric scraps, glue, and power tools in Oakland, California.

Bethany Mann is Sarah’s sister and partner in creative mess-making. With a rallying cry of, “Hey, we could totally make that ourselves!” she has fearlessly led her family and friends in numerous craft adventures. These days Bethany channels her artistic powers for good by using recycled materials and growing vegetables. Her projects have been featured in craft books for adults and on DIY TV. She lives with her husband, teenage son, and a menagerie of rescued pets in Santa Cruz, California. Read her blog at BitterBettyindustries.blogspot.com.
