This is the only book that crafty kids (and their crafty parents!) will ever need for rainy days. The chances are that once kids get their hands on this book, they will not mind if it rains every day! And who could blame them with 123 wonderful and wacky projects to make for themselves and their room, their family and friends.
Nimble fingers can model ferocious beasts and cosmic superheroes or create beautiful pots, jewellery and even a working clock! Plain T-shirts can be turned into one-off originals with fabric paint by following the stunning and brilliantly colourful designs. Many of the T-shirt painting designs can be used in conjunction with the masks and face painting ideas for fancy dress parties or school plays. Try the Spotty Dog face painting with Muddy Puppy T-shirt, or Sea Fantasy face painting and Fishy Focals with the Sea World T-shirt. Girls can go even further by using some of the fabulous hairstyle ideas to complete their outfits.
Friendship bracelet braiding and beading is one of the most popular crafts around. Kids love to make them for themselves or as gifts for their best friends. But why stop at bracelets? There are also instructions for making beaded necklaces, a hippy headband, a sunglasses strap and hair clip. Like all the projects in this book, there is room for kids to express their own creativity. They can modify the designs, choose their own favourite colours or even go on to create their own designs.
Kids also get their chance to be show-stopping performers. There are feats of juggling to master, balloons to model, magic tricks to learn and games to play with friends.
The easy-to-follow step-by-step pictures, instructions and handy hints make the projects a breeze for 7- to 12-year-olds to do alone or with their friends.
