Beaded Critters by Sonal Bhatt
In the spirit of her playful and popular first book, Totally Beads, Sonal Bhatt presents children with a delightful collection of more than 20 beaded animals, fruits, sea creatures, and even people. Bright, colorful, and utterly appealing, they’re great for adorning clothing, decorating book bags, wearing as jewelry, giving as gifts, or just showing off. And best of all, each vibrantly illustrated and carefully explained project is fun to make and well within the ability of kids trying this craft for the first time. A thorough introduction presents all the basics, from stringing to knotting, right at the start. Youngsters age 7 and up (pre-teens too!) will love fashioning a ladybug, butterfly, bat, seahorse, mermaid, bunny, grapes, and much more.
