Christmas Crafts for Kids 50 Step-by-step Decorations and Gift Ideas for Festive Fun by Petra BoaseThis title features simple-to-do projects using everyday materials such as cardboard, paper, paints, pencils, pens, glitter and glue. It shows you how to make your own festive cards and gift-wraps, as well as Christmas decorations and presents for your family and friends. Seasonal gift ideas include a wintry wool scarf and gloves set, fun Christmas tree earrings, a groovy dog bowl and a Santa Claus hand puppet. You can eat a treat a day from the Advent tree table decoration during the countdown to Christmas Day, or create a snowstorm shaker from an old jam jar and watch the glitter snow twinkle! Clear instructions and step-by-step photographs throughout the book make each project easy to follow. It is ideas for all children aged 7-12 to make themselves or with adult guidance. The excitement of Christmas starts when the decorations go up and you begin to think about gifts to give to those closest to you. Making things yourself is always lots of fun, and you'll be amazed how easy it is. Use a cork to stamp the polka-dot wrapping paper, and see what fantastic prints you can make with a potato dipped in paint. How about fashioning some funky egg cups for your friends, or a Christmas pudding apron for your grandmother or auntie? Difficult techniques, like making a tracing and scaling it up, using a compass and mixing paints, are fully explained in the introduction, and with a bit of practice you'll soon get the hang of them. This festive book is full of brilliant ideas, and is definitely the best way to solve the problem of what to give everyone this year!
