I received three craft books to review this summer — and I just got around to looking at them. I received no compensation for reviewing these books.
The three books are all by Suzanne McNeill and published by Fox Chapel Publishing:
I looked through the books, and here is my opinion of them:
- Vacation Crafting has a lot of neat projects. Many of them would be for upper grade school girls. Some like the foam crafts and the fusible beads, younger kids could do as well. I would even like to do some of these crafts!
- Foam Crafts for Kids had a lot more crafts that younger children could do. We did start making a couple of crafts; we just ran out of time to finish them. We will finish them this week! There were a few crafts that were more advanced and perfect for tweens.
- Totally Awesome Tie-Dye I am definitely saving this for reference. I have tried doing tie-dye t-shirts a couple of times with not great success although I had kits. The pictures in this book are amazing, so I am going to have to set aside some time to read the book, figure out what we have done wrong in the past, and try again.
The couple of crafts we started on were pencil holders out of middle size Pringle cans for the kids desks at school. They get to decorate their area, so they thought they would like those. They got the painting of their can done, but still have to do the foam part. They also cut out foam letters to decorate so they can put their name on the wall over their area. They still have to decorate the letters. They had a blast!
