--Encourage the development of a child's concentration and coordination, as well as organizational and manipulative skills, with well-chosen arts and crafts projects.

--Save money by making arts and crafts supplies such as paints, playdough, and craft clay with ingredients that can be found around the home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Craft Book Jan. 14 2014
By Zanna P
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great craft book, it has lots of craft that can be dome with what ever you have laying around the house and a few craft supplies. Many of the crafts can be appropriate for a large age range with a few adjustments. The instructions are clear and simple. The only downside is that it does not have pictures.
