Description

Banish the words ’I’m bored’ from your vocabulary! Never again will rainy days be lackluster. With I Can Make That!, young children will learn how to turn everyday materials into amazing art projects — garbage bags become delicate flowers, cornhusks become rustic dolls, old egg cartons become treasure trunks. I Can Make That! features materials lists, step-by-step color photographs, and a picture of the finished project to guide and inspire. From costumes to puppets, nature crafts to toys and games, I Can Make That! is brimming with simple, economical ideas that are great for both home and classroom. The materials are readily available and safe to use — and all activities are terrific recycling ideas!
