All over the world, parents are raising kids to get active and embrace the "design-it-yourself" spirit of homemade arts and crafts. D.I.Y. Kids encourages young readers to use basic design principles and onhand materials to express their individuality through more than eighty imaginative projects. The book is divided into four sections "Graphics," "Toys," "Home," and "Fashion" each packed with fun ideas for making T-shirts, party supplies, pop-up cards, bracelets, stuffed animals, and dozens of other fun and useful items. Each project is explained with step-by-step instructions and colorful photographs of cool designs and the kids who made them. The projects rated by difficulty, time, mess, and cost are intended for ages seven through twelve, but can easily be modified to suit all ages.

D.I.Y. Kids is designed to trigger imaginative play, without requiring fees, teams, or a minivan. It's for parents, teachers, aunts and uncles, friends and babysitters, neighbors and citizens anyone who wants to create a better world not only for, but also with, the next generation. Most of all, it is for kids who want to make their mark by exercising the arts of design with wit, intelligence, and style.
