Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-4
Each of these 20 simple crafts begins with a list of supplies, and then describes how to proceed. The illustrations effectively demonstrate each step. Most use supplies found around the house, but a few require beads or glass gems and fancy chenille strips. Crafts include handlebar tassels made from mylar balloons, a quarter bank in the form of a graduate for a graduation gift, a cold-drink coaster, a Fourth of July toss game, and caterpillar tablecloth weights. Most of the projects seem to be easy enough for children to do without much adult supervision, but they might need help with such things as cutting chenille strips in half.
