Book Overview

If you'd rather be outdoors than anyplace else, if you like to bring home cones and leaves and rocks but never know what to do with them, then Nature Crafts for Kids is for you. Organized by season, the more than 50 outdoor projects will show you how to learn by doing, as well as by looking and reading. You'll dig for clay in a creek bank, make pinch pots just as Native Americans did hundreds of years ago, and build a sawdust kiln that really works...

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.

True Crafting Book

I recently found this book at my local library and and loved it so much that I am looking to add it to my collection. This is not a book filled with cutsie fifteen minute projects that the kids do on their own, rather it is for adults to explore with kids, actually spending time with them. My children detest most children's crafts; they would much rather create something that gets used in real life. They can hardly wait to try out the cement birdbath, and are already making the pocket sundials. I am overjoyed to see them finally taking joy in crafting. Projects that take time and effort to finish help teach kids to see things through to the end and give them a greater appreciation for the work others put into their creations. Another great thing about this book is all of the extra information tucked in. There are boxes and pages dedicated to subjects such as types of bark, how to find the north star, and which birds eat which types of food. There are even sections on tracking animals, wind power, rain facts and how seeds travel. The information is interesting enough without over-doing it. All in all, an excellent rescource for a parent who wants to spend time exploring nature with kids, or for an older youth who likes nature.

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".
