My Review :

A wonderful book I say, to engage kids for hours and hours. There are around 60 cool projects that kids can do with simple, easily available and recycled materials like paper scraps, cardboard, toilet paper rolls, ice pop sticks etc.,

Both of my kids aged 5 years and 8 years really loved each and every craft in the book. The photos with detailed instructions are helpful to make the craft. 

My sons tried Weather puzzle with ice pop sticks, three season tree with paper scraps and a hand fan with ice pop sticks. All were easy and they could do without help/ supervision.Crafts with egg cartons are super cute. 




Here are some of the crafts I loved from the book:




Yes, we have many to try yet. Good fun activity for a few days after school and the homework.


My Rating: 5/5

I loved this book and I recommend to all the parents of kids who encourage creativity. 

PS: I have received this advance review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion of the book.
