Product Description

From Amazon

Kids are irresistibly drawn to the Internet, and of course parents want to make their children's time online both safe and productive. This worthwhile guide scores on both counts, providing essential information on general Web navigation and usage, excellent safety pointers, and hundreds of URLs for many types of youth-oriented craft sites. Since it's organized by category, users can easily pinpoint a particular interest, from various paper crafts to polymer clay, rubber stamping to doll and teddy bear making, even magic and juggling. All the sites offer free downloads (generally project instructions and/or coloring pages); those that also sell craft products are marked with a shopping cart symbol. TV shows are perhaps inescapable when it comes to kids, but the authors give TV a refreshingly minimal presence, listing only those TV-related sites that offer coloring pages or craft activities. Parents will discover plenty of Web sites of interest to creative grownups, too. --Amy Handy

Heim and Hansen have done it again! I bought Free Stuff for Quilters for my wife, and she loves it. We bought Free Stuff for Crafty Kids for our children, and we all love it. The beginning of the book is solid Internet information, the stuff everyone surfing should know. The meat of the book is a large assortment of "crafty" sites for everyone, young and old, of all skill levels. Sure we could find similar sites on our own. But why bother? Heim and Hansen did all the work and leave us with all the fun. I'm making kites with my son. My wife and daughter are polishing their drawing skills and learning about rubber stamping. I highly recommends this book!

The sites are terrific and well researched, but what I really liked best was all the information about how to make surfing the internet safe for my kids.
