Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Both of these books will appeal to children who are looking for ideas for something to do, baby-sitters, youth-group leaders, and others. Paper Plate Crafts gives suggestions for creating sea animals, insects, frogs, turkeys, lions, tigers, and other animals. Instructions are also given for making masks, hats, and seasonal crafts. The instructions are very simple. A list of supplies, a fun fact or two, and suggestions for related activities and for further reading are included. The second title is a Girl Scout Leader's dream of heaven when the international-friendship projects surface. Coded by degree of difficulty, the activities include creating a passport, making and packing suitcases from cardboard, and consulting a map of the world. Collecting foreign stamps is also suggested. North American totem poles, Hawaiian leis, Aboriginal bark painting, Japanese dolls in kimonos, Korean drums, egg-carton camels, Masai beaded necklaces, nesting Russian dolls, and South American gaucho belts are among the projects. While the ideas will not be new to veteran crafters, they are basic and solid for the intended audience.

I have a four year old son and he was so excited to do the crafts in this book. We started the day we got it and it has been wonderful. All of the projects use simple household items and are simple yet fun. No Martha Stewarts required! I am buying 3 more for friends and to donate to the preschool we attend. ENJOY!!

This book is perfect for your little ones. My 2 1/2 year old daughter loved the crafts we have already done out of the book. I also work with children as my job and also at my church. I highly recommend this book to all you parents, grandparents, Aunt & Uncles, All care givers, and even the expecting parents. A+ Book.

This had craft ideas for teachers and children of all ages , some easy, some more difficult. I had all the pieces they needed cut for the really young ones, and the more adapt with a scissors cut and colored their masks for themselves. The older children used the stapler and I helped. The class was in our local science museum and we talked about animals and springtime. I got a book to read from our library because a story is part of what this class is supposed to have at this time: a little talk "lesson", a craft and something to take home. The class was supposed to be for pre-schoolers, but the ages have gone up from just 3-4 year olds (and their parents) up to kg. and first graders, so this book can be used for a wide range of ages and abilities.

My grandchildren came for a week's stay last summer and before they arrived I looked for activities which would be enjoyable and keep them engaged. I ordered several books from Amazon and this one turned out to be a gem. We spent hours working on projects from this book and when their visit was over, I ended up sending not only the book, but several "art" projects home with them. I bought a second copy so I can have it here in case I need to entertain young minds and hands again. I have recommended it to every grandmother I know. The materials are inexpensive, the projects are simple, clever, and captivating.
