Spend a lazy crafternoon with your friends. From pretty school supplies to colorful tech accessoriest to perfect party decor, Lazy Crafternoon guides tween crafters through simple stesp to create amazing projects.For ages 9-13.
This is a fun little book that would be perfect for the young crafter. The age recommendation of 9-13 years is spot-on as the projects are simple enough for that age group to complete (some projects may require adult assistance).
Which is not to say adults can’t enjoy this book, too. There were a lot of projects that caught my eye as simple, fun ways to add a bit of decoration or fun to my house or my craft projects. I loved the simple instructions for an Infinity Scarf (my favourite kind of scarf to wear) and the Ribbon Wreath which could be adjusted to suit any season or festive event.
The primary school teacher in me loved a lot of the school supplies activities – Painted Pencils with Tulle Toppers, Painted Rocks and Washi Tape Paperclips. The Ribbon Chandelier would look wonderful in any child’s bedroom or classroom to add something special.
The materials lists and instructions are simple and clear. The photographs are big, bright and inspiring. Some of the projects would benefit from either diagrams or photographs of a step-by-step process to assist the more visual learners, but overall this is a fun little craft book that would brighten the day of any little crafter.
I rated Lazy Crafternoon 4 out of 5 stars.
