If this scenario sounds like your next few months, then Disney has just the book for you: Disney's FamilyFun Crafts. Created by Deanna F. Cook and the experts at FamilyFun Magazine, this book is crammed full of 500 fun, easy, and inexpensive ideas guaranteed to keep your little ones occupied for hours on end. From shadow silhouettes to egg carton critters to origami, parents will find activities for kids of all ages.
The craft ideas in this book are organized into chapters with similar themes. "Let's Color!" includes ideas using paint, crayons, pencils, and chalk. The chapter entitled "Likable Recyclables" provides uses for old cans, bottles, egg cartons, and milk jugs that are a lot more fun than simply tossing them into the recycle bin. "Gifts Kids Can Make" contains some great ideas that children can use to construct a special personalized present for a loved one this holiday season.
Each craft idea is presented in a familiar recipe-like fashion: a brief description, list of necessary materials, and instructions are furnished. The authors also provide parents with tips on how to "transform your home into a haven for artistic expression." That may sound tough, but it is easy as buying some oversize shirts for use as smocks, encouraging creativity, and stocking up on simple materials.
Disney's FamilyFun Crafts is the perfect anecdote for bored children on rainy or snowy days. It will not only help to keep the children happy and occupied, but may also preserve the sanity of mothers and fathers.
My 3 year old enjoys making things from the book as my 14 year old. And of course, I have a blast too.
I highly recommend this book. You don't need to be an expert crafter to do these crafts!
The book is very easy to follow and I love the way it is divided up. If children who are learning challenged can do this, anyone can.
