The Best Crafts and Activities from Many Lands

I really like this craft book. The instructions are carefully and clearly written with children in mind - easy to read and follow - and the illustrations are great! Craft projects give interesting facts about the culture they were originally created in and what the items are used for within these societies. There is also some great historical information that makes the crafts even more interesting and fun to do. For instance, we learned what prehistoric man used to make his cave drawings as well as what some of the symbols mean. The very first project gives a recipe for a dough that hardens; it is used in many of the crafts throughout the book.

These projects require a minimal amount of parental supervision, primarily for things such as the use of scissors and the oven. You will find most of the materials in your house or at a local grocery or hardware store. A glossary in the back answers questions about some of the more difficult or unusual words. The only concern I have with this book is that some of the items you create - fetishes, figures or good luck charms - are supposed to contain a "protective" spirit in the cultures where they are from. Other than that, I find it interesting and educational, especially because it leaves the reader with a desire to learn more. Kids Around the World CREATE is published by John Wiley & Sons and sells for $12.95.
