This was supposed to be a birthday present for our soon to be 7 year old grand daughter.....however, when I took the book out of the box a few of the back pages were bent...not bad, but I decided to look through the whole thing and see if there were any more pages folded...there weren't:):)This was a packing problem and has no bearing on the content of the book.In looking through the book, I found so many great projects to try with all of our grand kids, that I decided to get her something else...There are so many cool projects in this book using household items....I can see where this will keep our grand kids occupied for hours at a time.They range in age from 3-10, I think this is perfect for their ages:):)I love that it sections the book off into different areas, giving the reader ideas for keeping different things. Kitchen, Office, Bathroom, Garage and Nature....very well organized:):) I am going to start collecting now, I have 2 weeks before the grand kids come to visit and I want to be prepared:):)This is an easy read book, I feel totally comfortable with the 10 year old being able to do quite a few of these projects without help.I want to try the tye dye manicure myself:):)I think this would make a great gift for children or families with children and would highly recommend it.5-8-16 When our son saw this book, he thought our grand daughter would really like it, so he gave it to her and he was right, she really loved it and is going to try all the projects she can:):)
Filled with lots of creative ideas and crafts for kids! Love how she uses everyday items and simple supplies. The pages are nice and thick, so little fingers can't rip as easily. Pictures are crisp, clear and colorful. The Instructions are easy to follow and she lists supplies clearly. She includes tips and interesting facts that make it fun. Highly recommend to anyone with kids, especially preschoolers and toddlers!
I love that all 100 crafts are made with things that (so far) we've had on hand! (Coffee filters, q-tips, egg cartons, markers!) My son is loving the coffee filter and marker world craft! It's really neat to watch his creativity come to life and make the crafts all by himself. He whipped up an ocean painted coffee filter yesterday and attached little fish and sharks he cut out magazines. I can't wait to see which craft he chooses next!
I gifted this book to my brother to use with my niece - well, and for my mom and I to use with her as well. She absolutely loves it! We're pretty old fashioned in that we're not big fans of using a bunch of electronics or fancy toys with kids. When we get together, we craft. And we love to use household supplies and recycled materials. This book is absolutely perfect for my family! I also love that it can keep you busy for months if you choose one idea a day. It's a keeper for sure!
My 5 year old granddaughter was spellbound by this book. She marked with sticky notes all the crafts we will do together. She told her mom about this wonderful book at Grandma's house. We've done two crafts already and she and I really had fun. Thanks. This book connected us better than looking at Pinterest would have accomplished. That's what I was going for, along with finding easy to make fun things that didn't cost a great deal.
If you are a parent who wants to encourage your child's creativity without actually having to sit down and craft with them, this is the book for you! The instructions in the book are so easy to follow, young children can craft to their heart's content with little to no adult assistance. It's wonderful. My 7-year-old loves this book and I love that he loves it. It's a big hit in our house!
The photos are fun and fresh, the crafts are simple and easy for little ones. Best of all, they're pretty much free! (Assuming you have some simple supplies on hand. Which is not a stretch, you probably do.) A great book for kids or parents looking to shake up their day-to day life. I'd even gift this to babysitters, teachers, Sunday school educators, grandparents, or anyone who likes kids. The writer looks to be a former teacher turned full time blogger; you can see her enthusiasm shine from the pages.But is this a book kids will enjoy? Well, I've caught my 4, 5, & 7 year olds flipping through this book on multiple occasions. I think that speaks for itself.
---C.R.A.F.T is a MUST HAVE BOOK if you have kiddos in your life!! I'm not even talking about kiddos of your own peeps, I'm saying even if you are a proud auntie of two beautiful nephews [eh hem muah ;) ] grandma, parent, cousin, babysitter, friend of somebody with kids, or even just a kiddo at heart >pg 54 EGG CARTON FLOWERS [ not only do I love the fact that eggs are such a healthy, high-protein packed meal option , but now you have a fun way to turn those drab cartons into fab flowers--BONUS, they will never wilt, don't need any care [you got enough on your hands to care for am I right] and will last much longer real flowers)---HAPPY CR@FTING!!p.s.
