Need recommendations for 'make & do' craft book

(3 Posts)

This Usborne Book is good. There are a few more recommendations on the same amazon page. If I recall correctly there is a Christmas version too.

[[ http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Big-Book-Playtime-Activities/dp/074605369X/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1361143407&sr=8-3 This Usborne book]] is quite good. It is a collection of books you can buy individually but they also put them together in one volume. This version seems to have a couple more chapters in than mine. Now it has chapters on counting as well as drawing, sticking and that sort of thing. Some of the things require some adult help but then I think at 3 or 4 you would expect that. Often you might to cut out shapes but you could leave the child to decorate it which isn't too bad. Looks like it is out of print but I expect you can get it on eBay or second hand on Amazon.

I'm looking for recommendations of a good 'make and do' type book for children aged 3+, preferably with some easier projects / ideas as well as slightly more advanced ones. Some of the books I've used in the past have seemed fantastic, but the tasks require so much adult input I feel like I'm doing it all myself! I have the usborne book 'Educating and Entertaining your preschool child' but its more general. I often use the internet for ideas but the amount out there is overwhelming! Would be nice to have a book so we can flick through together and choose. Thank you!
