Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-A compilation of five volumes, written between 1994 and 1996, all of which are still in print. The puppet and game sections are particularly strong; the toys are whimsical and invite play, as do many of the creations. Many of the nature projects incorporate synthetic items. The minimal text consists of numbered, step-by-step illustrated, but occasionally sketchy, instructions (for instance, no measurements are given) and suggestions for using or playing the games created. The necessary materials are safe and easy to obtain. There is heavy use of bristol board, which is fairly expensive, as well as recycled materials, articles of clothing, and some furniture. Children are cautioned to ask for permission before using what they find around the house and to get help when needed. The full-color photographs fill each spread. Lists of additional craft titles by the same publisher have been added to this edition. Where demand for the subject is high or the original titles are worn, this volume is an attractive and appealing addition.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-6. This amiable collection of projects, a consolidation of crafts from five previous I Can Make That titles, includes easy instructions and photographs that show kids how to make puppets, costumes, nature crafts, toys, and games. Parents, librarians, teachers, and caregivers can help children transform ordinary objects into something extraordinary. In the section on games, a yellow sponge, cardboard, an egg carton, some paint, glue, yarn, and googly eyes are the components for a marvelous cat-and-mouse board game. Children will learn how to turn cardboard boxes into animal shapes for a zany game of mini-golf and to put potting soil and grass seed in stockings decorated with eyes and wait for "hair" to sprout. Sure to provide hours of entertainment. Shelley Townsend-Hudson

Super Creative Fun May 21 2013
By Skimmer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought more than one copy to share with grandchildren in different families. One was for my very creative and crafty 10-year-old granddaughter so she could help her little brother make a bunch of the easy, clever, smashing costumes. He lives in costumes (age 5). She got very excited looking through it with me, seeing how many things she could make herself. There are also a lot of other fun things kids can make, a wide variety, easy but with great results. I reviewed a bunch of books from the library, and this was the stand-out collection for this type of book. Bought one for myself too.
