The Best-Ever Art Activity Book,
This review is from: Let's Make Some Great Art (Paperback)
My children are four and five years old, and I'm always looking out for new ways to keep them entertained. This book is simply the best of its kind -a page or two of information on all the great artists is then followed by easy-to-follow instructions on how to make something in their style - whether it's a cubist portrait after Picasso, a Jackson Pollock drip painting or ink-blot spiders like Louise Bourgeois. It's brilliant! There's also loads of other activities - from making mobiles, masks, postcards or comic strips, or just basic colouring in - and every page is so beautifully and cleverly set up.
It's totally inspiring and really makes you want to get creative with your children. I couldn't recommend it more highly. When I first bought it I almost wanted to keep it to myself, but with a plane and train ride looming I knew it would be the perfect book to pack for the holiday. Now, I'm going to give copies to all my friends with kids, and actually, even the ones without!
