Plastic, Cardboard, Fabrics, ClayBook - 2001
Four dozen art projects for boys and girls are presented in brightly photo-illustrated spreads--all of them featuring easy-to-follow steps. To get projects going, kids need only standard art equipment such as crayons, magic markers, paints and brush, scissors, and construction paper. They'll also need easy-to-find household items, including tape, bottle caps, glue, drinking straws, discarded plastic containers, and the like. Projects fall under four general categories of 12 each. One dozen use cloth or yarns as their base material, 12 more use plastic, another 12 use modeling clay, and a final dozen use cardboard. Each project opens with a list of necessary items, then proceeds with words and pictures that show the work-in-progress from start to finish. Projects include a bright yellow sun clock face, a dancing marionette, a funny snail modeled in corrugated cardboard, a clay and wire mobile of astronauts orbiting the earth, and many more. Here's a fine book packed with entertaining ideas for rainy days at home, or for kindergarten and early-grade classrooms. Adult supervision is recommended for younger children.
