51 Things To Do With Egg Cartons by Fiona Hayes
Your basic equipment for the book are short six-egg cartons that have hinges on the long side (or others as specified), white glue, scissors, pencils, ruler, felt tip pens, paints and brushes.
There is 78 pages of clear photos, instructions in an easy to follow and colorful style. Each page also offers the written instructions.
The kids craft book covers making;
- happy hippo, tortoise, dragon, funny frog
- mushrooms, bird mask, bracelet, necklace
- owl, bee, spider
- hand and finger puppets

- and so much more!
This kids craft book is geared for kids ages 8-11, grades k-3. I think parents, home school parents and teachers would enjoy using this book to guide younger children with hands on arts and craft projects. I think many of the projects in the book will be fun for even pre school kids. I think that kids ages 8-11 will love this book!
Some of the younger kids may need help with projects.
The book would help with learning colors, manual dexterity, thinking and critical thinking, skill building. There is a lot of projects that can be used for creative play. There is a lot of fun and play to be had in this kids craft book!
For your pre school age children I think that some of the projects can be cut by the parent. Then colored by a pre schooler and assembled by the parent. Kids will have fun playing with any animal, vehicle or character from the projects in this craft book.
If you have multiple ages of young kids in the family this kids craft book might just be the perfect solution for indoor learning/playtime.
