One in the series "Make Your Own Art" that includes the ever-popular masks, puppets, origami and drawing.
Attractively presented, well designed and structured these items provide a sound introduction to the recyclable materials, and the art tools required.
A very interesting range of creative ideas are covered including; a bird feeder, bookends, bookmarks and batik paper. Each comes with good illustrations and clear instructions.
The "eco-crafts" title lends itself to a considerable range of classroom use from art to recycling. It’s an excellent instructional book that will provide ideas and inspiration for teachers, parents and year 4-8 students.
A glossary, index and list of websites allow will allow readers to explore further any aspect or project that particularly takes their interest.
