Martha Stewart’s Favorite Crafts for Kids
Random House was kind enough to send me a copy of Martha Stewart’s Favorite Crafts for Kids. You guys already know everything Martha puts out is amazing, and this book is no different. It covers a huge range of crafts for boys and girls: wet felting, origami, making toy boats, fun science experiments! There is so much inspiration between these covers from quick, easy boredom busters to in-depth projects that teach basic crafting skills.
I was going to tell you all about it, but as I was flipping through it to decide which craft to try out and share here, Huck and Milo ended up hovering over my shoulders, stopping me on every page to tell me that they wanted to try out “THAT one, no, wait, THIS one. Wait go back. THAT one…”
So I stopped and grabbed the video camera and asked them to flip though it themselves. Here’s what they thought, and a little peek at some of the projects inside:
So there you have it! From the mouths of babes – kids will love the projects in this book and want to make them! Seriously, I had, like 5 minutes of footage of them basically pointing at every single page and wanting to make the projects. And as soon as I pick Milo up from camp we’ll delve into some tie-dying action! Or maybe we’ll make a banjo. Or a pine cone penguin or a fuzzy lizard or or or or … !!! (I think the biggest challenge will be getting all three of us to agree on which craft to try first.)
