Make and Takes for Kids, written by Marie LeBaron, is a craft book for kids, with  a small twist. Being set up by months makes finding the right craft to make with your child easy. And if you happen to not prefer the craft choices of that month, there are lots of other great crafts that you can adjust to fit your needs.

What truly makes this book unique is the emphasis it places on child development. Each craft has a heading that lets you know just how it teaches your child, whether it be by developing hand-eye coordination, learning shapes, or even the power of giving someone a gift. It’s a perfect way to help your child with important life skills, spend quality time with them, and have fun all at the same time. What more could a parent ask for?

The crafts use items that are usually found around the house, and the items you don’t have on hand, are fairly cheap. This and the simplicity of the crafts means that any time can turn into craft time.

My favorite crafts were the Winter Wonderland Cereal Box Puzzle, Foam Heart Friendship Bracelet  and the Teacher’s Pet Rock Paperweight. Super cute!!

Make and Take for Kids is an excellent craft book for parents, grandparents or even if you just like to craft.  If you are looking for a great way to spend time with your kids and enjoy a little family time, I highly recommend this book.

Looking for a GREAT Christmas gift? Maybe a friend, exchange present for your play group or even a teacher’s gift…this book is perfect!!
