When I was a kid I would have loved to have made a solar oven. Children will enjoy this project even more when they get to cook sandwiches outside. Some of the other recipes include:
Chocolate Orange Pudding
For children who love gardening there is a fun project that shows you how to grow your own herbs in an egg carton. They can even create their own mini-wind farm or make a compost heap.
Most of the supplies needed to complete the projects can be found in the average home. I think you will find a few projects you really love. This book would also be perfect for teachers who are also looking for art projects. Each of the projects has a "chat point" and a "mini-chat point." These sections explain the meaning behind the projects. For example the chat point on the beeswax candles project says:
"Paraffin candles made from petroleum byproducts produce toxic soot, are laden with synthetic fragrances and number a population size greater than some countries. Converting to beeswax candles makes perfect sense."

to go GREEN. Going GREEN has become very important to me, and something I want my children not only
to learn about, but to practice. This book is so AMAZING that I purchased a copy as a gift for my
sister, so that she can enjoy doing these crafts and activities with her children. I highly recommend
this book, you will ENJOY it!!!
