2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed and returned 8 April 2011
By tampopo
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I felt more than half of this book contains information about recycling, reducing rubbish etc.
I had expected more interesting ideas of recycled "CRAFTS" rather than sentences and pictures.
The ideas of crafts itself are not only exciting but also they are what we have seen somewhere before.
I returned it immediately and would not recommend unless you would like to teach your child about recycling etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice! 10 July 2008
By Shala Kerrigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A friend got this for my daughter and I, and a lot of the projects in it are really suited better for parents with younger children, that being said, we loved it.
My daughter is almost 13 years old, and while a lot of the projects were a lot easier then she likes, they gave her ideas for doing similar things with a bit more complexity. The cardboard castle is a favorite, and she's got big plans for building her brother a dice tower now.
The other thing the book had that we both liked was a lot of information about how things are recycled, and a timeline of disposable manufacturing, so we both learned from it. It's good without being overly preachy, and since it's recycled crafts, the crafts are very inexpensive to make.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful resource for rainy-day fun 6 Nov 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Laura Martin's Recycled Crafts Box is a compilation of forty ecologically-friendly projects and activities that can be done cheaply from old things, from crafting sock puppets and cardboard castles to rag coasters and colorful picnic plate flowers. A delightful resource for rainy-day fun, artistic stimulation, and stimulating quality time to be shared with young ones. Also a highly recommended creative diversion, especially as an alternative to the ever-present press of television and other passive media.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great inspiration 22 Jan 2013
By Science Interpreter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this to inspire my 3-year-old daughter and me. Doing the crafts requires reading and adult-level skills (e.g., poking holes in metal), but the photos are good enough to excite her to do something and see what supplies we need to collect. At 3.5 years, she's just now starting to ask about the sections regarding the various materials, landfills, and recycling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very creative 28 July 2011
By D. A. J. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are some very creative projects in this book. While 75% of them won't work for us, the 25% that will work are definitely worth the price of the book. Not sure how the author is able to come up with such great projects, but they really are neat. Easy to do with thing you find around the house or yard. A winner for us!
