Editorial Reviews

Review

“Cardboard has never looked so good! In a world that's bombarded with boxes, this gorgeous book from Barbara Rucci couldn't have come at a better time. For anyone with a soft spot for the environment, Cardboard Creations is brimming with process-driven art projects that will delight and educate children on how to become resourceful makers.”
―Rachelle Doorley, arts educator, author of Tinkerlab: A Hands-On Guide for Little Inventors, and founder of the popular creativity blog, Tinkerlab

"Barbara has given not only beautiful photos that make you want to save every box, paper tube, or jar you can get your hands on, but she also reveals the secret to what captures a child’s attention and gets the child to want to take part in a creative process. This book isn’t just about making something, it is about constructing, color mixing, designing, and creating at a level that works no matter what age child you have. As a teacher for over 30 years, I can confidently say that Barbara’s insightful words at the beginning of the book as well as the easy-to-do ideas she shares will inspire the very best kind of creative thinking and participation at home or in the early childhood classroom!"
―Deborah Stewart, veteran preschool teacher and founder of the popular blog, Teach Preschool

"Cardboard Creations is an absolute gem for any teacher or parent. The activities are not only resourceful and engaging during the process of creation, but they captivate a child’s imagination long after the project is over. Many of the finished pieces can become a costume, a playhouse, a puppet, or a favorite toy. This intersection of art, play, and ingenuity is what creativity is all about!"
―Megan Schiller, teacher and founder of The Art Pantry, an online design studio specializing in children’s creative play spaces

"Bar always has the best ideas and those in Cardboard Creations are no exception. What an absolutely beautiful book filled with fun and creative projects that kids will LOVE!"
―Jean Van't Hul, author of The Artful Parent and The Artful Year, and founder of the family art blog, The Artful Parent

Cardboard Creations inspires children to connect with a resource that is plentiful and free, in meaningful and personal ways that can make your home and our planet a more beautiful place to live!”
―Jennifer Bryant, arts educator and founder of Small Hands Big Art, an art studio in Charlotte, North Carolina

“My philosophy as an author, teacher, mom, and educator has always been to honor the natural creative process children use to explore, discover, experiment, and create with materials and supplies on hand. Cardboard Creations offers children a plethora of process art explorations with cardboard and more. Barbara Rucci’s art invitations value and inspire the creative process of learning. I’m delighted to offer my highest recommendation of this book as important and valuable for children’s natural and precious creativity.”
―MaryAnn F. Kohl, educator and award-winning author of over 20 children’s art books

“Nothing inspires me quite like Bar’s ideas, methods, and philosophy. Her fun and colorful projects are attainable for anyone who has the desire to make art with kids. This book is super helpful because we all have recyclables lying around that can have a second life as an amazing piece of art. Bar has done it again. Her special style, color combinations, and creative energy are all right here. Open it up and make some ART!”
―Kim Poler, arts educator and founder of Beehive Art Studio in Wayland, Massachusetts

“I love so many things about this book―the low-cost materials, the ease of setting up a project, and the original creations―but I think what I love best is that it can equally engage both my 9-year-old and my 6-year-old, even though they have very different skill levels.”
―Asia Citro, author of 150+ Screen-Free Activities for Kids and The Curious Kid’s Science Book, and founder of the popular blog Fun at Home with Kids

About the Author

Bar Rucci is passionate about two things: children and art. She is a professional graphic designer, art teacher, blogger, and mom to three creative thinkers. Bar graduated from Skidmore College with a degree in art and a minor in early childhood development. After college she spent a decade on artistic entrepreneurial pursuits. She painted murals, designed textiles, created a children's clothing line, and finally taught herself graphic design. It was this last venture that became her calling, allowing her to stay home and raise her children. In 2012, she began her blog, Art Bar, a place where she explores her love of child-led art experiences and handmade things. Soon thereafter she began teaching art in her home.
