Book Description

10 Mar 2011
Give your kids their first taste of crafting with My First Craft Book, a brilliant introduction to a world of endless creative possibilities. With these 35 quick and easy ideas aimed at children aged from 7 to 11, there are hours of fun to be had. Every project comes with crystal clear instructions and cute artworks that guide your child through every step to make exciting toys, games, costumes and more. Kids who love to get messy will enjoy all the painting and printing projects, while tiny tailors can learn the basics of sewing by stitching together jewellery, toys and more. You'll find you can make lots of things with just paper and glue in the papercrafts section, and then kids can move onto bigger projects in the costumes section where there are lots of ideas for creative play. There's a whole range of projects using natural and recycled materials, too. Every activity expands your child's knowledge and once they have mastered the basics they can let their imagination run wild and start work on their own craft projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book. My First Craft Book 10 Aug 2012

Bought this book for my 9 year old granddaughter. She has enjoyed it very much. Instructions are very clear. She has made projects and has a list of supplies she needs for the next project.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I hoped for 19 Jun 2013
By Melissa M. Steele - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was seeking a craft book with ideas for my three year old and her friends during playdates. So seeing a book that reads " My FIRST craft book" I assumed it would be full of great crafts for preschool aged kids. Instead, it's a craft book for 7-11 year olds and the crafts are not really useful or cute anyway. If I am going to go to the trouble of having a craft playdate for 3 year olds I want the items they make to be useful and fun after they make them. I have had these kids make bird houses (for their yards), Doll house furniture, plant mini gardens and watched them grow, and even painted Christmas ornaments. This book is filled with cheap and cheesy paper craft ideas that will quickly be thrown out in the trash. Sad. I need to write my own book of preschool crafts!
