If you are a parent or teacher of young kids, you know how hard it is when the inspiration dries up. The Best of Making Things by Anne Wiseman is the best cure for a dry spell I know. This book is great, not only for all the creative project ideas, but also for all it’s reuses of recycled objects. Innovative and sustainable, you have to like that.
In the same vein, my mother-in-law recently purchased Highlights Craft Book Set 1 for PZ. It is a collection of four books – Look What You Can Make With: Boxes, Tubes, Paper Plates, and Paper Bags. Perfect for a rainy day or a long break from school (just in time, no preschool for two weeks!), these books are so much fun. We haven’t tried any of these projects yet, but PZ has been scoping them out, everyday pointing out a new one she wants to try. I’ll let you know. Happy crafting!
