The Arts & Crafts Busy Book should be required reading for anyone raising or teaching children. It is written with warmth and sprinkled with humor and insight.
The Arts & Crafts Busy Book contains 365 screen-free, fun, creative and educational arts and crafts projects for children ages two to six that provide a great alternative to using TV as a babysitter. It shows parents and daycare providers how to:
Stimulate creativity and self-expression with activities that encourage a child to explore his or her place in the world.
Create experiments with paint, glue, playdough, paper, and markers that focus a child’s energy constructively.
Encourage the development of a child’s concentration and coordination, as well as organizational and manipulative skills, with well-chosen arts and crafts projects.
Save money by making arts and crafts supplies such as paints, playdough, and craft clay with ingredients that can be found around the home.
Celebrate the holidays and other occasions with special projects and activities.
