Unplug and get creative with more than 150 craft and art activities for kids.
Kids Create features more than 150 engaging and thought-provoking art projects and crafts for kids, ages three to nine. Arranged by craft medium, and ranging from beginner to advanced, these projects, including seasonal options, are great for homeschooling, school projects, and weekends.
Illustrations and step-by-step instructions demonstrate each activity and what it should look like along the way.
Activities include shadow silhouettes, sponge art, a windsock recycling craft, a globe-making activity, and many more, including holiday themed-decorations. Also included is an informative section for parents on the stages of a child's artistic development. This is a perfect book for creative families who want to make something great together.
