Description

The book one librarian called “the best craft book she’d ever seen” has been updated and reissued to introduce a new generation of children to the fun of crafts. 
Children as young as four years old can take common household materials and easy-to-obtain natural materials like twigs and turn them into costumes, puppets, toys, games, and more. Step-by-step instructions and photographs keep things simple and easy to understand, making the book perfect for home, school, library, camp, or even daycare. 
Accessible and fun, the very do-able crafts of I Can Make That! provide kids the opportunity to develop skills and leave them with a sense of accomplishment. The Boston Globe called the projects in the book “absolutely ingenious.” You will too.
