9781579655143: Project Kid: 100 Ingenious Crafts for Family Fun

Perfect for crafty parents who are eager to get their kids excited about DIY, ProjectKid is everything you could want in a craft book: 100(!) stylish, inventive projects; step-by-step photographs; tips for the novice crafter; easy-to-follow instructions; and a fresh, modern look. What really sets these projects apart are the unexpected, ingenious ways Kingloff uses everyday objects and materials. (Did you ever think a body-wash bottle would make a perfect rocket ship?) And these are projects for things kids want to make―and keep―from a juice-box owl to a pirate ship to a curio cabinet for displaying all of their treasures, plus games, jewelry, and more. Also included in the book are basic crafting lessons (such as pom-pom making and weaving) to help children of all ages build a DIY arsenal, a handy guide to must-have tools and materials, and a source directory.

“Whether it’s home, classroom or just backyard planning, this book is a must to try out crafts for all seasons. Full-color photographs with easy-to-follow instructions make this something for all ages.”
Deseret News

“Rainy day life saver. . . . The step-by-step pictures make it pretty impossible to screw up these crafts.”
Metro

“Endless fodder for creativity. . . . The inventive DIYs range from superhero capes created from dish towels to decoupage animal masks that would make John Derian proud.”
Lonny

“With this book and a few basic supplies on hand, you’ll never hear ‘Mom, I’m bored’ again.”

“Unique, family-friendly projects. . . . Pick up a copy and you’ll be DIY-ing in no time!”

―Scholastic Parent & Child

 

“Can you believe these materials come together to make something so pretty and useful? It’s like magic. Almost.”

―Today’s Parent

 

“This excursion into childhood’s dream world . . . is not a typical kids’ craft book. . . . The emphasis is clearly on the home, but there are clear applications for classrooms, day care, and the enterprising babysitter needing to answer the “I’m bored” whine. Hardly just a rainy-day project compendium, this is work to keep brains busy and families happy.”
