You don’t need to be an arty creative type to be able to enjoy crafting with your young children. Mini Makers will give you the ideas and the inspiration to experiment with and explore the hugely rewarding world of making and creating together. Paint, draw, print, cut, stick, sew and bake your way through this book with your little makers. From making messy potato prints to painting a cardboard boat and recreating a teddy bear’s picnic, there is plenty to get stuck into. The makes described in the book are designed to encourage the parent and child to craft together, with the adult typically creating the basic structure and the child decorating and personalizing to create the finished product. Clear step-by-step pictures guide you through how to do each one from scratch. As well as being great fun, the crafts encourage imaginative play and are designed to develop fine motor control whilst promoting life skills such as telling the time, playing games with other children, following rules, musical awareness, rhythm, baking and reusing household items.
