Book Review

I Can Make That! Fantastic Crafts for Kids is divided into five chapters: Costumes, Puppets, Nature Crafts, Toys and Games. What I really like about this book are the materials used, most of which could be gathered from around the house/garden/forest or purchased inexpensively. Another thing I like is the projects all require some amount of grown-up participation for the preparation of the materials (i.e. cutting, sewing and stapling) as well as assembly of large projects such as the Enchanted Castle, which makes the projects a family effort. The design details (color choices and embellishments) of the project are all up to the children.

At the beginning of the chapters in I Can Make That! there is a section called Let’s Make (Costumes, Puppets, Nature Crafts, Toys, Games). This section outlines all the tools and supplies required for the projects in that chapter as well as any applicable hints and tips. The instructions for the projects in this book are very easy to follow because clear step-by-step photos of the entire process accompany them, which facilitate the reader’s success when making the project. The bright colors in the photos of the projects (i.e. the Star Explorer project including a spaceship, space helmet and alien) are very inspiring and engaging, which attracts the reader to the projects. The wide variety of projects is a bonus because it betters the chances there is something there for every interest and every occasion

Favorites:

  • Superheroes (costumes)
  • Enchanted Castle
  • Silly Dragon (puppet)
  • Wonderful Wizard (puppet)
  • Finger Wigglers (puppets)
  • Twig Vase
