I really liked this book. It was under £4 when I bought it and well worth it! The contents consist of about 28 projects. They are perfect for under 5's but there are also more ideas given for older children to tackle the same project but with more attention to detail. Yes, as a previous review states, the projects are a bit samey in the sense that they are paper cuts outs etc but the themes are very different and the book has to be easy because it's aimed at toddlers!
Some of the activities include; Space Rocket, Choo-choo train, Big red bus, Hot air balloon, Shark, Seahorse, Octopus, Rainbow fish, Woolly sheep, Scarecrow, Windmill and many more.
You will need lots of coloured paper card to go with this book.

I bought this book because my daughter (2,5y) has shown great interest in 'crafty' projects and i am not creative enough to think of something more than...actually, anything at all. Book has good ideas, she is definitively too young to make it herself but is able to follow. Grand parents are up for some great presents this Christmas.

It is easy to read, it has the list of supplies you will need and easy step by step explanation. it also has a 'more difficult' finishing touches section for older children. I think this book is suited more for older kids and group projects therefore creche/ Montessori teachers, kids party organizers can find it more appealing.

I've bought a lot of toddler activity books and this is the one I've used frequently.
I'm a full time mum of two looking for things to entertain my children when I'm at home with them all week (on a very small budget).
I found these instructions easy to follow and prepare. My daughter & I have enjoyed making most of the things in this book and she has a priceless look of pride on her face when she shows daddy what she's made when he walks through the door. I've even prepared activities from this book when I've had children visit for play dates which have gone down with great success. Once you get the hang of what you can make with a little preperation time it's inspired me to prepare crafts for different animals and objects that are not in the book. Would highly recommend this book to boost creativity, confidence & learn animals etc. I've hung up everything we've made in my daughters bedroom to help her with her learning before she starts pre-school.

I really like this book. The ideas and instructions are simple and the outcomes very satisfying. Before this book I was really struggling to come up with ideas of things to make with my 2 daughters (aged 2 and 3). The girls have really enjoyed the activities and the kitchen cabinets are adorned with their artwork. I didn't think I'd get into craft, but this book has planted a seed!

This is such a deceptively simple book, one which we are very much enjoying. The beauty of this is each project is very easy, so simple you might wonder why you didn't think of it before. But we aint all supermum so i suggest you just pretend you did. My son is 3 and like others i have exhausted my repertoire and used craft sites and books which have lovely projects which i have tried with him, and ended up doing most of it myself as the project is too complicated or he didnt have the stamina for it. There are tips for older children which we are incorporating, i wouldnt say children older than 5 will go for the projects. Requires mostly paper, card, glue, the odd toilet roll and things like tin foil, you wont need fancy embellishments but you can easily use them if you have them. Great fun

This book arrived yesterday and it is just what I needed to entertain the 3 year old once a week and her 18 month old brother a little later on. Fair amount of granny prep required but I like cutting and sticking and playing messy craft. The ideas are v. simple but so is a small child's mind and they get fed up quickly. This is great cos if I prep something it can probably be over and done with before Evelyn gets bored or Xander needs a bum change!

Well worth the money although just spent a fortune on paper plates, coloured paper and card all from the 99p shop so really not bad at all!

II have found this book invaluable as I do not have a creative bone in my body!! My daughter has loved the simple craft ideas, which can be adjusted to suit the child's skill level. I can imagine if you are particularly creative you may find this book quite simple & you could have come up with the ideas yourself.

Disappointed with book :-( projects bit samey (toilet tolls plates and collage) ideal for school and nursery...especially if doing an animal or vehicle theme (pretty much sums the whole book) was going to cost me as much to return as for book....so donating it to my lg nursery.

This a not amazing, it would be more appropriate to call it childrens paper collage ideas because that's basically what it is. Good for toddlers first paper sticking projects as they like collages when they are little. There is not much craft or 3d projects at all.

When l opend this book my first thought was disappointment. I expected it to give me ideas of activites to do with my two year old. It has lots of things to make but it does seem too much for a toddler.
