Overview

An ingeniously simple and fully-illustrated book for crafting toys from objects found around the house.

This clever guide focuses on fun, homemade projects using materials anyone can find around the house or that can be purchased for a fraction of what a commercially-produced toy can cost. Using everyday objects from cardboard tubing to paper to clothespins, readers will discover how to make such projects as:

• A milk carton balloon boat

• A rubber band banjo

• A cardboard tube kaleidoscope

• An embroidery hoop tambourine

• And more

Perfect for parents and teachers, these projects enable families to spend less while keeping entertained. Because fun doesn't always have to come in a box-sometimes, it's the box itself.

I am tired of samples that give you nothing. The sample pages should give a few crafts so you can see what you are getting, not just the preface stuff.

They should give you more of a sample! It is 1/4 of the intro and the titles of the chapters!

if you cant flip through a few pages to get an idea of the book you are looking at, then why even bother. why not just set a time limit of a couple of hours?

How can I read just a few pages inside the book, in my Ebook library? This may help me to decide to buy it.
