Editorial Reviews

"Fine artist and blogger Rodabaugh takes items that most people have around the house and turns them into whimsical creations in this collection of environmentally friendly craft projects intended to be made by and for children. Each section of the book focuses on a different material--paper, books, or boxes--and there's also a final chapter full of projects intended for public display (think yarn bombing, only with upcycled crafts). Most of the projects only require simple supplies such as scissors and glue, making them easily accessible to families on a budget. The simplest of the projects would be appropriate for preschoolers with a parent's help; some of Rodabaugh's more sophisticated creations are best attempted by the ten-and-older crowd. An added bonus: many of the projects would also make excellent library craft programs for children and teens. VERDICT Craft projects using recycled or upcycled materials are perennially popular, and the kid-friendly angle adds a fun dimension." - Library Journal
