Marie from Make and Takes just came out with her very first book! And we had the wonderful opportunity to review it!
I have always been amazed with Marie’s creativity, but this book (published by Wiley) completely blew me away! There are 4-5 crafts for kids for every month of the year!
And before you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to kid’s crafts, I assure you…you have not. Marie is amazingly creative and talented.
Here are a few more details about the book, from the Make and Takes website.
Highlighting the best of each month of the year, Make and Takes for Kids offers 50 projects to make with kids, each centered around an upcoming holiday or season. The ideas are unique and simple to produce, and each project is thoughtfully constructed and designed to create an ideal environment and setting for crafting. Each craft requires little preparation, few supplies, and almost everything can be readily found at home or at a local craft supply store.
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. In Make and Takes for Kids, popular craft blogger Marie LeBaron brings her creativity and her training in early childhood development together in a truly original children’s crafting book.
If you’re looking for a great gift idea for someone who has (or works with) children, this is it! This gift keeps on giving the whole year long with memorable time of crafting and learning with your child.
