Necessity is the mother of invention...
...with that in mind, the backyard and the recycling bin abound with great materials and ideas for crafting and activity fun.
Perfect for a lazy weekend afternoons or a rainy day, Green Crafts for Children by Emma Hardy is full of ideas to turn those old mittens and almost done potatoes to good use.
...we especially love the drift wood tic tac toe... so simple, yet endlessly entertaining and easy to pull together. We didn't have any drift wood on hand, but some twigs outside the front door proved to be just as useful...
Fun and imaginative, Green Crafts for Children is a delightful book that shows kids the possibility in simplicity, and the beauty in pulling together odds and ends to create wonderful worlds of imagination.
