a PERFECT family craft book,
This review is from: Make and Takes for Kids: 50 Crafts Throughout the Year (Paperback)
Make and Takes for Kids by Marie LeBaron is a f-f-f-f-FABULOUS family craft book. Let me simply tell you why:
You won't spend $187.56 at your local craft store to finish any of the projects, heck you won't spend over a few dollars or nothing at all for most of them. They are all *affordable* crafts.
They are crafts that like the title says that the KIDS can do, which a lot of crafts out there for kids, they really are too difficult, time consuming and you know for a fact in the finished picture that a kid didn't even TOUCH that craft project.
You know what you skim through a craft publication and you decide which ones you could actually see yourself doing and usually there is a big handful...but there are a quite a bit you feel that are too over the top or too lam-eo? Well NOT with this book. My daughters and I decided that we would do 47 out of the 50 crafts. That is really amazing that that many appealed to us!
The directions are clear, the pictures are such fun, the layout of the book is perfect and the organization of the crafts by the months of the year is just the best way to do it.
The ideas! Lots of them are just so simple and clever you think now why didn't *I* think of that! They are the crafts that are such good ideas that you tell a friend, who tells another friend and soon every class party at your elementary school is doing that particular craft at the next class party cause it was just so darn clever!
