Synopsis

ScrapKins: Junk Re-Thunk by Brian Yanish

Welcome to Scrap City, home of an inventive tribe of creatures called ScrapKins. Using materials that people throw away (empty soda bottles, cans, milk cartons, and cereal boxes) these creatures make new things that are useful and fun - they are the ultimate recyclers. With character profiles of the ScrapKins and instructions to make all kinds of puppets, instruments, and toys out of everyday items, this activity book (also featuring mazes, word scrambles, and comics) fosters creativity and encourages eco-friendliness.

Reviews

Underlying lessons relating to science, art, language, and history will spur the imagination and inspire kids to produce their own treasures. . . A great STEM-focused craft book for at-home rainy day fun.
