Book Review: Martha Stewart's Crafts for Kids

There's a new kids craft book on the shelves and it comes from one of the most respected crafting names in the DIY business – Martha Stewart! Martha Stewart's Favorite Crafts for Kids hit bookstore shelves last month and is a must-have for families who love to make and create. The book is packed with craft project ideas, making it a weekend go-to when looking for a fun activity. This new book, from the editors at Martha Stewart Living, is sure to be a classic in your family's library and pored over hour after hour.

Approximately 175 projects make up this anthology of kid crafting inspiration. The all-color book's projects are organized by seven themes, ranging from finger puppets to creating your own journals. What's evident right away is that you don't need an over-the-top art supply closet to make the projects in this book.

Ideas like the Cotton Ball Sheep and Rock Friends require supplies that are either in your medicine cabinet or garden. The projects also range from very easy to "let's set a few hours aside today to have fun with this." It really is something for everyone in the family.

The book doesn't rely on just one type of project for kids to try. Themes in the book get down and dirty with science, but offer quicker-than-quick ideas, like button picture frames, that can be made on-the-spot.

So, the next time you're at the store or browsing for a new crafty read to buy online, make sure to add this title to your list.
