101 Things to Make and Do With KidsBook - 2008/09/30
Organized according to season, a handy guide to crafts for parents, teachers, and others to do with children features nearly one hundred simple projects that include step-by-step instructions and line drawings for paper-cut snowflake decorations, a pumpkin-seed necklace, a pressed-flower scrapbook, and other activities. 25,000 first printing.
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.
