The Lovereading4Kids comment

We love this series of four books - Print It!, Draw It!, Paint It! and Make It! - under the Art Smart umbrella. Each book is wonderfully inspirational with an incredibly clear 'how to' approach. Children aged 5+ will have hours of fun drawing, painting, printing and making giftcards, photo frames, T shirts in fact almost anything you can think of is here in one of the four books. Check out the Contents page for each title by downloading the exclusive extract for each title on Lovereading4kids. Great books for rainy days...

In Paint It! there are 12 inspiring painting projects to try including a self-portrait, monster painting, glowing fish and stencil snowflakes to name just 4.

In Draw It! you'll find plenty of inspiration to draw cool stickers, draw your own postcards and make a stunning leopard spot photo frame and lots more besides.

In Make It! use lots of textiles and make pillowcases, mobiles, puppets and hair bands and that's just for starters.

In Print It! design and produce your own boxes, turn your plimsolls into something unique and print your own T shirts too.
