If you're a crafty mum or dad, knit addict babysitter or uninspired play-school attendant, then Making Stuff For Kids is defiantly the right craft book for you.
The book is crammed full of fun and exciting craft projects that are simple enough for your kids to do, while being engaging enough for grown-ups to enjoy, making this a must-buy for school holidays. Some of the best projects include instructions for sewing a tutu, a pattern for knitted critters and a recipe for play dough.
Don't worry if you're a beginner crafter either, the skill-level required ranges from basic to advanced, while suggesting which projects are best for certain age groups and providing tutorials for a range of crafting techniques. And at the very back of the book, there's an adult's only section, providing more complicated projects for grown-up's to do unsupervised while the kids rest after a long day of craft.
Following on from the success of Making Stuff: An Alternative Craft Book, Making Stuff for Kids is a vibrant and exciting new craft book that features a whole slew of new ideas for cool things to make for and with kids.
Well-loved favorites, like piñatas, potato printing and kaleidoscopes are explained and illustrated, as well as felted puppets, wacky worms and nautical mobiles. Alongside these is a chapter of ideas that adults can make for their little ones -- this includes bibs, booties, hats, toy boxes and a whole selection of Halloween costumes.
The craft revolution has officially begun. In the aftermath of the knitting epidemic, people all over the world are turning back to those long-lost handicrafts of sewing, felting and crochet. So much so that sometimes it feels that crafting for children has been left behind as the adults get busy with the gaffer tape.
Perfect for children under ten and for young mums and dads, Making Stuff for Kids is a straight up shot of pure unadulterated fun for all.
