Let’s Get Crafty with Fabric and Felt has lots of simple and fun ideas and my kids have enjoyed making crafts even when they were very young. It has clear and easy to follow instructions and photos for each craft. So far, we’ve made the adorable pom-pom bee, which we just made our own template (included in the book) since we didn’t have a pom-pom maker. the spoon puppets are so cute and are easy to make using any fabric scraps you have on hand. Most of the crafts use white glue or a glue stick, so they are kid-friendly and safe.
We’ve been enjoying several ideas from Let’s Get Crafty with Paper and Glue, including making a papier mache bowl and then painting it. My daughter has it in her room now holding her barrettes and hair things. We made a somewhat smaller size than shown and it was fun and easy to do. It was a little messy, but we made it on our patio, so it wasn’t a problem. There’s seasonal projects which are nice, since we always seem to want to craft for the holidays. All of the projects need some amount of adult supervision, but the kids can definitely be involved.
