Crafting Fun is filled with simple, lovely, do-able craft projects, many of which I remember from my own childhood. Your children will be able to do the projects themselves, rather than stand back and watch you do them. Just this December, my 5-1/2-year-old and I have made popcorn and cranberry garlands, tinsel stars with pipe cleaners, construction paper garlands, a lovely ice picture with leaves and berries in a pie pan, and pinecone treats for birds. We didn't have to buy a thing, other than the cranberries; everything else we had on hand. There are many, many more winter projects to choose from, and we are looking forward to all of the wonderful ideas from other seasons, as well.
Some of the projects in this book may have you thinking, "I don't need a book for that!Read more ›
And the book is lovely to look at! I often find myself flipping through the colorful pages, daydreaming about something to do next.
I think this book is best used with children ages six and up, although many of the activities could be adapted for younger children.
The book is a work of art in itself. Beautiful illustrations throughout make it a nice gift to give to friends(who are also teachers and parents).
It's a book to keep for a lifetime.

At the same time, I found the author to be lazy. Read more

Seems like something you would have done in the 50's. The stuff is pretty easy to make but kinda outdated. Wish I would have looked into it more.Published on December 15, 2009 by Aeonlapp
