In our hurried times Crafting Fun introduces kids to classic childhood crafts that many of us remember fondly. The charming vintage art illustrating all the projects adds to the appeal and the hidden-spiral binding with a sturdy paper-over-board cover makes the book easy to use.

101 easy and entertaining projects are explained on one to two pages each. Make a pumpkin-seed necklace or crayoned waxed leaves for fall, decorate with paper-cut snowflakes during the winter or make a summer scrapbook of pressed flowers. The step-by-step directions and line drawings allow even the youngest crafter to follow along. The seasonal activities also include fun facts relating to the projects, like how to tell a ghost story, charts of state trees, and the names of the first Thanksgiving attendees.

HOURS OF ENTERTAINMENT---projects and activities are organized by season to provide year-round activities for children, parents, and teachers.

SIMPLE FUN PROJECTS---from creating glittery holiday decorations, to making tin can lanterns, kites that really fly, or spooky cheesecloth ghosts, the book is filled with projects with an old-fashioned slant.

RECYCLE BASIC HOUSEHOLD ITEMS---most of the projects use simple materials found in every home, such as aluminum foil, string, paper bags, egg cartons, and others.

FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN ALSO---many of the projects can be done by younger children with adult supervision.

For parents, grandparents or teachers, this lovely book will help create fond family memories and provide a plethora of fun projects and activities.
