There are 15 projects included in this book, and all of them are different and unique in their own way. Although this book is written for kids, I thought most of the projects would be fun to make for myself. There is a Garden Box, which looks like a picket fence with flowers behind it, that I thought was especially unique. I also liked the Burger Box, which is made using a tuna can, paper mache', and felt.
The book starts out with a handy list of supplies most of the projects need, such as cardboard, paint, and glue; although, each specific craft project has it's own supply list. There is also a section at the front of the book that explains various decorating techniques. Included here is paper mache' collage, painting tips, and hints about adding other decorations.
My daughter finally settled on the Photo Box. It is made using a shoebox, cardboard, a paper bag, a photo, pictures from magazines, and a few other craft supplies. The project was very easy for her to complete and the results were stunning. The hardest part of this project for her was trying to decide which picture to add to the top of the box.
Older children, 10 and above, should have no problem understanding and completing these projects. Some of the projects do require the use of a utility knife, so there is some help and supervision that will be needed. Younger kids will enjoy making them too, with a little more help. Don't forget us really big kids, I can hardly wait to try making one myself!
