Not a childrens crafting book at all

There's nothing "kids" about any of the crafts in this book. They're all things that require adult supervision, or basically, need to be done by an adult. *Maybe* a pre-teen could do some of this on their own, but most require at least some store-bought materials. It includes dangerous things that require PPE, like using powdered concrete. Not recommended for younger kids...doesn't really look like something I'd consider for older kids either. Lots of words, not a lot of pictures, and the ideas are...sometimes downright using a dead fish to paint and print on a t-shirt.

peaceful, creative, and attractive

This book combines fairly simple craft projects with an eco-friendly approach. Ideas are divided by season, as the availability of materials will vary, and projects range from animal sanctuaries and feeders to rustic toys and arts. The whole book strives to foster a love of and respect for nature, discussing natural phenomena and facts about the everyday things we know little about. The whole feel of the book really worked for me, and I think imparting this respect for our planet is always a good idea, not only because we have to live here and treat our surroundings well, but because nature has so much to offer us. These ideas make for great shared experiences with a family or class. Great fun, educational, and filled with lovely photos and ideas.

Kid Style Nature Crafts

Here is another great book by this author that makes learning nature and science fun. The seasonal organization of the book is helpful in that materials are available for the projects during the time the book suggests making them. Like "Nature Crafts for Kids",(by the same author) this book contains wonderful pictures of the projects and step by step instructions. Some of the projects are more challanging than others and adult supervision is a good idea. This is a wonderful excuse to have time together with a special child, enjoy sharing ideas and make something that can be fun and rewarding. Take the time to share the wonderful things in nature and the things that can be made from natural things by using this book with special children around you.

Nature Crafts for Kids

This book contains wonderful ideas for a wide range of ages using items found in nature. The crafts are arranged according to the season in which most of the materials will be found. They give alternate places in which to find some materials or replacemant materials. There are great illustrations and very good step by step instructions for creating the items. Children that have this book available to them and have the help of an interested adult need not be bored any time of the year. Projects are fun, instructional and varied. Children can learn to enjoy nature,science and make many useful things using this book. Learning filled with fun and excitement could be a subtitle for "Nature Crafts For Kids".
