Give your kids their first taste of crafting with My First Craft Book, a brilliant introduction to a world of endless creative possibilities.

Every project comes with crystal-clear instructions and cute artworks that guide your child through every step. You'll find you can make lots of things with just paper and glue in the 'Papercrafts' section, while tiny tailors can learn about basic stitching in the Simple Sewing chapter. Kids can move onto bigger projects in the 'Costumes' section, where there are lots of ideas for creative play. There's a chapter on transforming natural and recycled materials into presents and toys; plus, the holidays will never be boring, with ideas for pumpkin animals, Easter egg cards and Christmas cookies. Every activity expands your child's knowledge and once they have mastered the basics they can let their imagination run wild and start work on their own craft projects.
