Fun and Easy Crafting with Recycled Materials: 60 Cool Projects that Reimagine Paper Rolls, Egg Cartons, Jars and More!
Kids with time on their hands and nothing to do is a recipe for disaster. Why not have lots of things on hand to keep the kiddos busy, especially when the “ingredients” are mostly found items that are in nearly every home with the addition of a few items from the local craft store? This book has sixty projects based on six basic items: Paper Rolls (toilet paper or paper towel rolls), Egg Cartons, Scrap Paper and Newspaper, Cardboard, Ice Pop Sticks, and Jars and Bottles. Keep a tin of buttons, some paints, pens, pencils, scissors, glue, rubber bands, scrap felt, and art foam around and maybe some wiggle eyes, and you are all set for a ton of fun and cute projects. Each project has a large photo of the completed project, a materials list, and excellently written directions followed by step-by-step photos. If children are quite young, parents will need to be close by and ready to help, but from eight or nine and up, kids will be able to do these fun projects on their own. This is a terrific book — well-designed and well-written. Kids, teachers, and parents will love it.
