Review for The Grown-up’s Guide to Crafting with Kids

The Grown-Up's Guide to Crafting with Kids, Non-fiction, Crafts, Projects, Activities, Gradient, Pink, Blue, Crab, Rocks, Non-fiction, Vicki ManningI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I love crafting, origami, sewing, knitting, making cards, and more. So when I saw this book on Netgalley I was definitely interested. I was curious what kind of projects we would find in this book and which would inspire me. I don’t have kids, so nothing to inspire there.

Like many crafts book this one starts with various introduction from how to get started and what materials and tools to use. But then the real fun starts with 20 delightful and fun prompts and projects. I was a big fan of the first project already, which featured several nature art projects one could try out. From some things I already knew (shell necklaces and painting rocks for instance) to stuff I didn’t know and boy I want to try out. I wouldn’t mind some cute little crabs. Guess I will have to wait until next year though because no visits to the beach this year due to all the Corona business, so I will have to keep this project in mind.
I definitely want to try out making that banner, that looks so pretty, I thought they would keep the leaves and such in, but they get those out so you are left with the imprint of it. Those robots were also adorable, and I already have some plans in my head what I could make.
I didn’t even know there were pompom makers! I would just cut a circle from a carton x2, then make a hole in the middle and get to wrapping. I really want to get to pompomming again, that ice cream cone looks so cute.

It wasn’t always the easiest read, but that is no fault of the book, that is the files fault. It was at times laggy and at times just didn’t want to scroll without almost crashing. This is part of my reading experience so I do mention it.

All in all, clear instructions, delightful and fun projects that will inspire young and old, fun photographs that help with the instructions. I would recommend this fun crafts book to all. I think this would be especially great with the situation as it is now. With summer coming up and things still being restricted this book will be great so kids have some great activities to do.

Star rating, 4 stars
