What really sets these projects apart are the unexpected, ingenious ways Kingloff uses everyday objects and materials. (Did you ever think a body-wash bottle would make a perfect rocket ship?) And these are projects for things kids want to makeand keepfrom a juice-box owl to a pirate ship to a curio cabinet for displaying all of their treasures, plus games, jewelry, and more. Also included in the book are basic crafting lessons (such as pom-pom making and weaving) to help children of all ages build a DIY arsenal, a handy guide to must-have tools and materials, and a source directory.

Who says Grandparents aren’t cool - I’m too old to run after my grandkids. And I can’t compete with technology. So I need traps to slow them down a little. I can, however, sit at a table with them and make pirate ships and fake flowers. I didn’t have all of the tools and the right materials, but it didn’t seem to make much of a difference. We had a lot of fun anyway and the kids got to make their own versions of Ms. Kingloff’s crafts. My favorite part was seeing their eyes light up and listening to their chatter while we made a mess together.
