The Repair Shop Craft Book: Over 30 Creative Crafts for Children
Whether it's a cute teddy, a homemade bird feeder, or a beautiful card on some handmade marbled paper, there is a project to suit any group or adventurous solo crafter. The projects chosen by the Repair Shop experts have clever tips and extra ideas that will add creativity and imaginative flair to your crafting sessions.
This book has thirty achievable classic craft projects for a range of ages. It is set out in four sections; making toys, presents, outdoor craft and decorations and the layout is very accessible for any ability. Included in each project are preparation techniques that are easy to follow accompanied by Sònia Albert's constructive, yet simple illustrations.
Why not make a decoupage treasure box decorated with feathers, stones, beads and ribbons to keep all your craft essentials safe. Personalised gifts and cards are such treasures when received, and bunting and decorations certainly make any party. You can even prepare by collecting everyday materials and recycling left over craft pieces.
Each project ensures a great result with all the hints, tips and safety advice. There are imaginative techniques for all projects and although parental guidance and supervision is necessary for some, it will enhance the enjoyment. With practice, younger crafters will build confidence in construction, following instructions, measurement, shapes and colouring. Group activities encourage a great variety of ideas and teamwork and sharing is at the heart of these projects.
So jot down your ideas for your sock puppet or box house project and let the creativity begin!
