Description

The ideal follow-up to the much-buzzed-about The Grown-Up's Guide to Making Art with Kids, The Grown-Up's Guide to Crafting with Kids features more tactile projects that will improve kids’ fine motor and visual processing skills, in addition to strengthening their focus and memory. Plus, crafting is super fun!
 
The book follows the same format as the first in the Grown-Up's Guide series, consisting of multiple creative prompts, exercises, and step-by-step crafting projects that children and adults can do together. Author Vicki Manning, who runs a popular Instagram account where she regularly posts craft projects that she's done with her own kids, The Grown-Up’s Guide to Crafting with Kids appeals to parents, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, and anyone else who wants to spend creative time with the kids in their lives. Kids will love working with adults to make crafts, which include:
  • Clay robots
  • Pom-pom ice-cream cones
  • Sun printing
  • Treasure boxes
  • Wax-resist bookmarks
  • And much more
Chapters on tools and materials, sourcing materials around the home and outside, and suggestions for engagement and craft-making are included as well.

With fun, colorful, and appealing artwork and projects; easy-to-follow instructions; and crafts made from accessible, affordable, and popular materials, The Grown-Up’s Guide to Crafting with Kids will quickly become an essential book for families, preschool and elementary schools, art classes, and more.
