You don't need to be an expert crafter or arty creative type to enjoy making things with your young children. Mini Makers will give you the ideas and inspiration to explore the hugely rewarding world of making and creating together. Paint, draw, print, cut, stick, sew, and bake your way through these many projects with your little helpers. From messy potato prints to painting a cardboard boat and recreating a teddy bears' picnic, there is plenty to get hands messy and faces smiling.

Designed to encourage crafting together, grown-ups can create the basic structure while the children decorate and personalize 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 while promoting life skills such as telling the time, playing games with other children, following rules, musical awareness, rhythm, baking, and reusing household items.

Mini Makers includes:

- 23 stimulating and rewarding projects for children and grown-ups to make together - Tips and ideas of how the finished projects can be played with - Ideas for reusing many household items, such as cardboard boxes and tubes, jars and elastic bands - Fun for children aged 2-6 and parents with little or no crafting skills

Children will love the thing you make with them because you made them together. They will be unique, personal, and the fun you had creating them will be remembered. Order your copy of Mini Makers today!
