This title features simple, fun projects that use easy everyday materials: cooking, growing, science, music, painting, crafts and party games. It features over 100 fun activities that kids will love, with magic tricks, food to cook, plants to grow and games to play. All the projects use easy, safe materials and equipment you will find around the home. Among the many items to make or paint are a feather headdress, wooden spoon puppets and a printed T-shirt. For budding scientists there are simple experiments that will answer children's questions about light, sound, electricity and water. It features clear stage-by-stage photography for every project and lively finished pictures to inspire and delight. This brilliant book is packed with exciting ideas that combine crafting fun, learning and play. Young musicians can make their own instruments and discover a whole new range of sounds to explore - a cardboard tube easily becomes a kazoo and a bottle xylophone can be created in next to no time. Children will also be tempted into the kitchen by an imaginative collection of easy recipes, from funny face pizzas to a wobbly dessert pond. And when it's time for a party, here are all the ideas you will need for games, decorations and teatime treats.
