Format: Paperback
Full of simple arts and crafts for toddlers and preschool children "The Arts and Crafts Busy Book" is a great resource. In total there are 365 basic crafts grouped into 12 chapters. Some of the areas covered include coloring, painting, printmaking, modeling, sculpting, nature arts and crafts, educational arts and crafts, and holiday arts and crafts. Each craft is laid out in cookbook style listing all the materials required first and then the instructions for completing the craft. Easy, fun activities for preschool children, "The Arts and Crafts Busy Book" is highly recommended for anyone who deals with young children.

Format: Paperback
I have been a first grade teacher for 12 years, so I really know arts and crafts books inside and out. This is an outstanding book. What sets this book apart from all of the other craft books out there is Trish's aversion to doing crafts with kids. She wrote that she just wasn't that into it. Therefore, she has written a book that has projects that require VERY little adult help, are easy, have little clean up, and best of all ~ they are really FUN for kids! I just open the book, read what is on the page, and set my 5 and 6 year old to work. For example, one day I opened the book and my kids found themselves at the kitchen table with mini marshmallows and toothpicks, building. Clean up for me: a few toothpicks on the floor. (and a week later sneaking it into the trash) They had a blast for the whole evening doing that. This is my favorite Arts and Crafts book. Really, her whole series is great, but I would start with this one. Happy Non Crafting!

This book offers many good ideas for parents to do with their kids. I think it would be more helpful if it includes photos of the finished products. Even though I own this book, I usually go to crafting blogs or family magazines for arts and crafts ideas because they have photos of the process and finished products.

Format: Paperback
This book was not what I thought. Activities are very basic and it is a small paperback book without many illustrations, so it's up to you to figure out the descriptions.
