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.
