I'm sure you've realized by now that we're a crafty family. The girls and I love any excuse to sit around the kitchen table and create. So, when Project Kid: 100 Ingenious Crafts for Family Fun by Amanda Kingloff arrived at our front door, we were immediately smitten. The projects are awesome, smart, and loads of fun. You could make needlepoint flyswatters, a robot bank from recycled materials, or cut up your old t-shirts for some wearable baubles.
Not only are the ideas inventive, but they also use a lot of reusable materials. You'll be shopping in your recycle bin for many of your supplies. Your kids will have so much fun. Elementary-aged kids and even tweens can tackle most of the projects themselves. Your younger kids will need mom or dads help for many of the projects. Each project has step-by-step instructions with tons of photos. Even if you're not confident with your crafting abilities, you can handle the projects in this book.
After leafing through the book a few times, we settled on the A+ Graduation Cap. After all, it was the end of the school year and I've got two kids ready to move on to the next grade level (2nd grade and kindergarten... oh my!). The instructions were easy to follow and our hats turned out quite awesome. And, the girls never took them off! I imagine we'll be making many more of the projects in Project Kid: 100 Ingenious Crafts for Family Fun this summer.
Keep this book around and any day can turn into crafting day. It's perfect for rainy days or any day when boredom hits. I loved it and I think you will too!
