Make and Takes for Kids: 50 Crafts Throughout the Year by Marie LeBaron
From the publisher: Crafting isn’t just playtime; there’s a purpose to all the gluing, cutting, and coloring. Children are learning hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, problem solving, math, teamwork, and individual expression. They are exercising creativity and building their imaginations. Make and Takes for Kids highlights the learning objectives and skills that children will attain as they complete each craft. Parents learn the benefits of spending time to create and craft with their children, and see the growth and creativity that children can experience while crafting.
I first met Marie several years ago. A long time fan of her blog Make and Takes, I would definitely say Marie knows a thing or two about crafting with kids. If you want to keep your kids busy this summer with some brand new crafts and a few favorite projects, then this book is for you. Your kids can pick and choose the activities they want to do or you could surprise them and look like a super star. Thanks Marie for donating this book!
