Playful: Toys and Crafts Made by Hand is a charming collection of 26 unique, modern projects for parents (and other adults) to make for young children as well as an exciting assortment of projects that kids preschool age and up can make alongside an adult. Divided into five categories--Playful Dress Up, Playful Toys, Playful Paper Crafts, Playful Repurposing and Playful Art--the low-skill/high-style/low-cost projects include fair maiden and knight dress-up smocks, a tiger pinata, a parade of paper puppets, a convoy of trucks, a dollhouse made out of cardboard and bright duct tape, an art table, a cloth trapeze doll and wooden pencil holders.
Templates for artwork shown on projects are included with step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions. Authored by Merrilee Liddiard and photographed by Nicole Gerulat, this enchanting book is sure to inspire many happy hours of making--as well as make-believe--among adults and the children they love.
