Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I borrowed a copy of this book from the library when my kids were young and we loved it so much, we borrowed it several times! There are projects for kids of all ages, so even the littlest child can create things. And the recommended materials list consists primarily of things you can find around your house or yard, so there's no need to plan a shopping trip first. The best part is that the kids can participate in the hunt for the materials, so each project can be two activities in one! Though my kids are now much older now, I just had to buy this book so that when kids come to visit, there'll always be something fun for them to do!

This book rocks! I am childcare provider and these "recipes" are totally awesome! The book gives great instructions and ideas and most of them are inexpensive and easy to do! These art projects are good for both the kiddo you might take care of as well as the kiddo inside! I totally recommend it for anyone looking to do more "green art"!

Enjoyed using this book to teach kids about environment & art. It helped me weave field trips to the park into art projects in the class room.
