Synopsis

With Scrap Paper by Susie Brooks

A collection of fun, simple, inexpensive craft projects, ideal for time-poor parents and budget-challenged schools, promoting reuse and recycling. Beautifully designed, the book is clearly and appealingly illustrated with step-by-step instructions and engaging artwork. Each activity is straightforward and achievable, and as such allows stressed or anxious children to 'make it happy', building confidence in their own abilities. Let's Make Art With Scrap Paper shows you how to weave paper into skyscrapers, make shaggy dogs from old newspaper, create a mosaic smiley snail, assemble an elephant-shaped bookmark from cardboard and old magazines and much, much more. Techniques include drawing, painting, printing, collage, making rubbings and paint-scraping - used in ingenious ways for fantastic results! Other titles in the series include Let's Make Art By Printing and Stamping, Let's Make Art with Everyday Things and Let's Make Art with Hands and Feet, so there's a whole load of upcycling fun to be had!
