Book Review

I really like the colourful illustrations framing the instructions for all the projects in Crafts to make in Winter. The illustrations make the pages very eye catching and draw the reader in as they are looking to see what craft is contained on that page. I am very fond of Kathy Ross’ books because the materials used are largely recycled materials or materials that can easily be found around the house. Also in typical Ross style the tools and materials as well as the step-by-step instructions are clearly illustrated so children who don’t read can help identify what is needed to make the craft and help gather the tools and materials.

The craft ideas in this book primarily have to do with winter (10) and Christmas (5) but also cover holidays occurring during the main winter months (i.e. Hanukkah (2), Kwanzaa (1), New Year’s (1), Martin Luther King Day (2), Groundhog Day (1), Valentine’s Day (4), President’s Day (2), Purim (1), and even National Dental Health Month (1) which is in February). I like the wide variety of projects that are included in Crafts to make in the Winter because they offer children the opportunity to learn about and celebrate holidays significant to different nationalities while making a fun, related craft.

Just a quick note about the Snowman Pin, it is a nice craft idea but I feel it is my duty as a parent and a teacher to mention a peanut is used in the construction of this craft. If something else could be substituted when children who might have a nut allergy or have been diagnosed with nut allergies are going to do this craft, especially in a school setting, it would be best for all concerned. This craft would be ideal for a home setting where the parent knows her child/ren have no nut allergies that would affect them when making this craft.

Favorites:

  • Jar Snowman (winter)
  • Tiny Tree Ornament (Christmas)
  • Ear of Corn Magnet (Kwanzaa)
  • Confetti Noise Maker (New Years’)
  • Lace Snowflake (winter)

Overall Rating:

4/5
