The book gives a list of needed items in the front cover such as glue, tape, scissors, etc. Occasionally the book calls for yarn or other items not listed in the front but they are usually items that are easy to find around the house.
I have put together a plastic box with a lid which I added glue sticks, kid scissors, tape, crayons, paper and a few craft books including The Never-Bored Kid Book Ages 4-5, I Can Draw Animals and I Can Draw People (The two latter are by Usborne). I added a few more books but his favorite is the Never-Bored Kid Book. Then the I Can Draw books. He has access to this box and can use it any time.
I put together a similar box as stated above for my niece for her 8th birthday and I included The Never-Bored Kid Book, Ages 7-8.
I will definitely buy the next book in the seres for my son when he is ready. This book has been great.
Oh and my 4 year old is sitting next to me cutting out a bear from the book as I type this. I will definitely be buying him more of these books, but I think it'll be a while before he finishes this one.
The book contains a variety of activities including mazes, simple dot-to-dots, matching, coloring, drawing and other preschool appropriate activities. It is especially heavy on cutting, folding and gluing projects. The pages for these projects are helpfully single-sided, so you don't need to worry about destroying an activity on the other side. While cutting and gluing are great developmental activities for preschoolers, as a young four-year-old, my daughter needs adult assistance to complete most of these projects; perhaps older preschoolers can do them on their own. Most of the other projects she can do on her own, although on some of the color pages she needs me to tell her what color is called for (although sometimes she doesn't care and just uses her own colors.
My daughter really likes this book and it has kept her busy since she got it Christmas morning. My only complaint (which I acknowledge is my own issue) is that I had planned more for this to be an independent project for times when I'm too busy to be with her, but instead it has become a parent-child project. Of course it's great for parents to spend time with their children, and I've enjoyed working on the crafts with my daughter. But that still doesn't help me during Mommy's busy times.
Highly recommended for fun and skill-building for the preschooler in your life.

Some of the stuff in here is age appropriate. Others are much too easy. Dot to dots are straight lines, some of which go to No. 7-8? I think the highest is maybe 10. Read morePublished 3 months ago by rr521
My nearly 3 year old grand-nephew loves this book. He can do much of it himself, except the actual cutting. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Feedback

This is a good way to keep kids entertained and learning. They will need some supervision and help though. Not a book for in the car as you need scissors, glue, etc.Published on January 7, 2014 by Kindle Customer
