Project book for the kids (and you!) November 13 2014, 0 Comments



Playful a craft book from paper puppets to DIY toys this is the perfect book by Merrilee Liddiard to receive or give to a fellow crafter. Although I do not consider myself super crafty I have one book for my sister in law (super crafty) and for myself (wannabe). I'm a bit obsessed with the Soft Trapeze Doll (page 67) and I am totally making the Tiger Piñata  (page 25) next birthday. The crafts are perfect for a home schooling mom or like me I am planning to use this when we are stuck inside during the crazy winter weekends.  For under $17 at Amazon.

Huge fan or not he would enjoy this printable Robot Paper Craft especially since spring break is here and craft projects are very much needed to keep everyone sane!
