Product Description

Review

'It is lovely to see the joy brought to children by making things as simple as doodle birds, paper snowflakes, paper chains and quilled cards. So effective yet oh, so simple! My particular favourite was making animals out of leaf prints whereby you develop your animal from the print made by one leaf: long leaves become giraffes; rounded leaves become lions, and so on. Families rating: 6 out of 6' - Families upon Avon magazine

Not Exactly as Advertised Aug. 27 2010
By FroggyMama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Potential buyers should know that this book doesn't really have 365 distinct craft techniques. There are actually only 64 different techniques/ideas, and the various specific derivations thereof are what make up the "365". For example - in the Butterfly Garden Collage; the basic butterfly, perching butterfly, dragonfly, bug, flowers, and bee all count toward the "things", even though they are all part of the whole craft.

That being said, this is still a pretty cool book. There are a variety of styles, ideas, and themes; all very distinct from the craft books I've seen before. These ideas are fresh and new, and fun. I'd say most of them are for older children, at least 6 or 7 years old. But there are some that my preschooler will probably be able to do on his own, and several he could do with help. They all use very basic supplies, and have the potential for much creative interpretation. So, despite the sketchy advertising, I still think this book will be good to have.

Packed full of fun Oct. 1 2008
By SmartMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you want to get your children's creative juices flowing, this will help. This book is packed with so many easy to follow ideas and projects. It has step by step instructions with pictures for each step. Just by following the pictures a child will find success with every step. It is beautiful, colorful and easy enough for pre-schoolers. This is one that all elementary schools should own. I highly recommend it.

usborne always delivers! April 3 2010
By 3xmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This publisher always puts out high quality books and this is no exception. My 5 and 9 y.o. eagerly started projects. It made for a great Family Craft Night. You do need to have more than the basic crayons and markers and papers to really enjoy this book. Keep a stash of yarn, pipe cleaners, scrapbook paper too.
Highly recommend adding this book so you can always be fresh with ideas of making family time special.

Well Done Jan. 13 2010
By R. Pettit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is so full of ideas. I am going to be teaching an after school art class and will be using projects from this book. I think it's a little advanced for preschoolers, but that's just me. I like "Arts & Crafts Busy Book : 365 Activities" by Trish Kuffner, it has great ideas for that age level. I originally purchased this from Amazon thinking that my kids would like to do some things in it (which they do), but I have to say that I have been having a lot of fun. As a previous reviewer said... it makes for a wonderful art journal. I really like the author Fiona Watt, she is very creative. I found this book by searching her name. She has some wonderful books. Try searching her name (it's more direct to search: "art by fiona watt"), and you will see... happy creating!

Wonderful resource April 8 2011
By aeldridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm an art teacher by trade, but now staying home with my two boys under 4 years old. I recently discovered Usborne books and am so pleased with many of their titles. Even art teachers need some inspiration and this book is packed full of ideas that are great for older children (middle school included) and can even be adapted for preschoolers. I'm also an illustrator, so there are some activities that I've tried on my own, just to get the creative juices flowing!

Highly recommend this title. Please be aware that there are not 365 individual pages of projects...each 'theme' or 'project' may have several things to make within the theme on that page.

This book is very high quality, hardcover and spiral-bound for easy referral during the art making process. I love that it lays open so I don't have to flip through pages with messy hands. It has a modern look and includes more than your typical paper plate-type preschool craft books. Enjoy!
