About this title
Kids stretch minds, bodies, and voices with over 100 outrageous art, crafts, song, storytelling, food, fantasy, nature, ethnic, and building experiences. Bare minimum instructions celebrate individuality and the creative spirit.Review:
Wow! What a resource! This is a dream book for a craft or art teacher, a parent, a club leader or a handful of kids looking for a spark to ignite their creative energy. In over 150 pages of ideas, instruction and pictures, kids can create masks, sculptures, baskets, costumes-even robots. If one project doesn't "click," there are dozens of others to try. The author helps at the outset by listing items around the house to collect for the projects. She also lists a small number of items that may need to be purchased-nothing expensive or out of the ordinary.Geared for kids ages 6-14, projects are labeled by various levels of challenge, but the author is quick to point out that a more difficult rating shouldn't keep anyone from trying it. Motivated and patient kids can do just fine on their own with these projects, but a little help from an adult can add some inspiration and know-how.These projects are fun, do-able, artistic adventures. Planning a party? How about getting some kids to make phony apple pie (p. 38), some apple faces (p. 40) or some "wormy" apples (with cleverly concealed hot fudge inside). Have fun! -- From Independent Publisher
