So Many Great IdeasJan 05, 2001
This book is full of great craft ideas. My favorite is the materials and activity indexes at the end. Say you have some extra paper towel rolls you want to make a craft with, just look it up, turn to the pages listed and there are several ideas of how to use them in a fun and creative way with your child. This book has inspired me to try some new things - it's bringing out the artist in my child and I. Each craft project has a list of supplies you'll need, steps to make it, and activities you can do with it. Music, movement, dramatic play, math, language, etc. are included with craft ideas. The author also lists related books you can read along with your project to make it a real learning experience. This book is so much fun! It's not just for teachers; it's a must for parents who want to do arts and crafts with their kids.

What a great first craft book............Sep 03, 2002
What a great book. As a new to homeschooling, and new to America mum, I find this book gives me not just varied & interesting craft projects for my 5yr old daughter but also suggests reading books that blend well with the chosen craft.
For those that are not the best at artistic & creative thinking this book is a must.

LOTS of activities!Dec 07, 2011
This book is a very large book full of wonderful craft ideas. It does require many craft items and supplies that are not things we have around the house. Not a big deal, but I need to work on stocking my craft supplies. Many of these activities are a little ahead of my almost 3 year old, but she will soon grow into it. If you want a large book with a lot of ideas, this is great.
I also bought the "Preschooler's Busy Book" and find that uses more household items, but the crafts aren't as extensive. So, I think they will contemplate each other this next year with my daughter.
Lots of ideasJan 03, 2013
By Mishi Mendota
This book has lots of ideas for arts and crafts. There are hardly any pictures, which would be a bit more helpful than just having a written description. The crafts are all age appropriate.
