You and your children can make your everyday world good and green with this fantastic craft book. Using natural, leftover and recyclable materials, give your creative talents an eco-makeover. A great way to instil upon young children the fragility of planet Earth and the importance of having a good green footprint.

Synopsis

The Good Green Footprint: Crafts to Help Save the Planet by Christina Goodings

Playing on the well-known phrase 'carbon footprint', this make-and-do book includes a range of crafts on the green theme. Photo and illustrated step-by-step guides show children how to make all sorts of simple things that link in with the reduce, reuse, recycle concept. For example, scrap material can be transformed into a shopping bag - reducing the need for throwaway bags. An old shirt becomes a peg bag for hanging clothes on the line to dry instead of using a dryer; and unused portions of used paper become papier mache pals and greetings cards.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
