6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Harold McFarland HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on February 25, 2004
Format: Paperback
A fun collection of various craft formulas, "Crafty Concoctions" is a delight to read through and play with the resulting concoctions. The various formulas are divided up into groups that include crayons, paints, play doughs, clays, chalks, glues and pastes, inks and dyes, paper, body art, cosmetics, special effects, and edible concoctions. The question that comes to mind immediately is why make these things when you can buy paint and play dough off the shelf? Well, besides the fun of making it yourself there are a lot of things that you don't find on store shelves. For example, one of the really popular ones with children is bathroom finger paint that can be used to paint on the bathtub wall and easily cleaned off with soap and water. Other popular ones include beadwork clay, awesome rubber, and lip-gloss. "Crafty Concoctions" is a recommended purchase for anyone with children and an interest in sharing craft activities with them.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So many clever ideas for engaging kids of all ages. Each activity is well presented and easy to follow. The supplies needed are readily available and cost little or nothing.
Those projects that require grown up help such as using heat are well marked. I can see using this with my granddaughters for years.....they are 2 and 4 now.
