Synopsis

With Everyday Things 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 is therapeutic for stressed or anxious children, allowing them to make things by themselves, and to have confidence in their own abilities. Let's Make Art With Everyday Things shows you how to use object found lying around, from cardboard and coins to leaves and vegetables, to make ice-cream bunting, forky faces, pasta prints, a soapy solar system, leafy insects and much, much more. Techniques include 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 Hands and Feet and Let's Make Art with Scrap Paper, so there's a whole load of upcycling fun to be had!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
