Summary

Summary

Nature Crafts is filled with 16 projects that kids ages 6-12 will love. They'll learn how to use fun materials from outdoors such as leaves, rocks, or feathers to create keepsakes they'll cherish. Whether they live in a city, suburb or near the beach, kids everywhere can have a wild time creating these crafts, including: leaf print placemats, scarves and napkins; bookmarks made with pressed leaves and flowers; flower pounded pillows and clothing; picture frames decorated with pebbles, shells, nuts or sticks. Kids will be able to make a week at camp or vacations at the beach last forever, or venture into their own backyard to transform natural discoveries into creative treasures. Joy Williams is a junior high school art teacher and has taught nature craft classes at summer camps for many years. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Williams begins with a note to adults about collecting natural materials with children and sparking creativity. Additional introductory text encourages care in preparation of the work space; has a reminder about safety; and lists possible natural materials as well as glues, papers, clays, and paints. The 16 projects range in difficulty from making bookmarks with pressed leaves and petals to fashioning candleholders, keepsake pillows, and treasure dishes. Each item is carefully presented with color photographs both of the supplies needed and of the steps in the production process. Safety precautions are repeated throughout the text. Most useful with adult assistance, this attractive title is similar in format to Angela Wilkes's My First Nature Book (Knopf, 1990; o.p.), but many of the projects are more difficult.-Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
