Synopsis

Farm Fun by Fiona Watt

This is a farm-themed activity book perfect for young children only just getting to grips with art and craft projects. Each simple activity is ideal for a parent or carer to share with a young child and helps to develop important skills such as hand control, coordination and concentration. The projects include fingerprint pigs, chalky, chirpy chicks and a paper scarecrow with simple step-by-step picture instructions and there are two pages of stickers to help decorate and complete each farmyard activity. To help encourage and build confidence, a relaxed attitude is taken towards each activity, let the child do as little or as much as they want, the results don't have to be perfect - it's the taking part that counts.
