Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3 Up Anyone who has ever worked with crafts and children will want to add this recipe book to their collection. Con coctions include a variety of pastes and glues, modeling compounds, different types of papier-mache paints, inks, and even flower preservation. All ingredients may be found easily in grocery, drug-or hardware stores; many already will be in the kitchen. ``Helpful hints'' identify where less common items may be found as well as other important considerations. Safety tips are presented in a preface and are repeated at the end of a recipe when a potentially harmful ingredient is used. Other craft books, such as Ann Wise man's Making Things: the Hand Book of Creative Discovery, Book 2 (Little, 1975) and Phyllis Fiarotta's Sticks and Stones and Ice Cream Cones (Workman, , 1973) sometimes include a similar recipe or two, but it's quite handy to have a number of these recipes under one cover. This revi sion of the 1973 edition includes more than 12 new recipes, many of which do have warning notes accompanying them, mak ing this edition more appropriate for adult use or adult supervised activities with young children. For young children, the best book is still Chernoff's Clay Dough, Play Dough (Walker, 1974; o.p.). Maria B. Salvadore, District of Columbia Public Library

This is great! It's a former library book in excellent condition considering how many hands may have touched it.

HASH(0x9a8b2228) out of 5 stars Very good book on home-made art and craft supplies Dec 7 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Helen's book is a wealth of information on art and craft materials you can make at home. The supplies necessary are easy to find, many of which are found commonly in the home, and most of which are non-toxic. This book is especially great for parents who have young children experimenting in the art world, and they will save money by making their own materials over buying commercial products. Helen Sattler's recipes cover paints, glues, many common and unusual modelling clay compounds, inks, papier mache, and some unusual materials such as crystal garden growing compound and stamp glue. Budding artists young and old will find this book to be an intriguing and resourceful compilation. It's also a great gift for teachers and other people who work with young children.

HASH(0x9a4a0750) out of 5 stars the best ever Oct. 23 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the ultimate book for scout leaders, creative teachers, youth leaders, anyone with kids who wants to make those common things that we get off the shelf. In here, you can find recipes for ink, paint, glue, clay in any form. The kids' reaction is something along the lines of "WOW!", "I didn't know you could make that," " Is that how it's done?" The book shows us mere mortals how to make magic. Great fun for kids of all ages!

HASH(0x9c0139c0) out of 5 stars Great recipes Jan. 28 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Many of the recipes that have been replaced by costly commercial versions. You can make your own at a fraction of the cost using this book plus you make only as much as you need without the leftover (to be thrown away) of unused commercial quantities.

HASH(0x9a45e174) out of 5 stars Recipes for pennies to replace store bought for dollars March 11 2015
By Susan Bishop - Published on
I checked this book out from the library and before I was halfway through, I was on Amazon to see if I could buy one for my very own. The hectograph pad brought back memories from my childhood -- I was the teacher's pet in first grade and was allowed to print math worksheets with one. Can't wait to try some of the casting compounds. Definitely will use the dried flower preservatives.

I took this book out at my local library several years ago and have used several of the recipes. I needed to get another recipe for a project and when I saw it online at such a reasonable cost, I just had to get it.
