Craft it Up Around the World by Libby Abadee, Cath Armstrong

Driven by a passion for travel, photography and craft, Libby Abadee and Cath Armstrong have created Craft It Up Around The World to inspire children to look at the world around them. They have designed 35 unique and enduring projects that represent different countries, all complete with fun facts. Discover how with simple kitchen ingredients you can make salt dough coins to evoke the magic of the Trevi Fountain in Rome, or transform a drinks can into a Jamaican-style tin can drum. Give the Turkish whirling Dervish doll a spin, or make colourful coasters based on the designs of African flags. As you follow the easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photographs, you'll make stunning crafts that you'll want to keep forever or give as beautiful gifts.
