This creative activity book just right for the very youngest children - get them started on the enjoyment of crafting early! So often, activities are for older children, but these really do work well for young ones - I have tried them! It's a lovely colourful book, with generously sized pages, and a finished version of each craft is included to inspire children. The materials used are simple - many will be found around the house and the instructions are straightforward. A most attractive book that will be a real pleasure to use. Parents in Touch
