just five simple steps, children can make a variety of whimsical objects
such as a snake, a watch, and gift tags out of cardboard.
Fourteen projects make clever use of commonly available materials and
simple tools, turning egg cartons, paper towel rolls, and card stock into
lasting crafts and toys. Children five years and older will develop fine
motor skills, feed their creativity, and be encouraged to find new uses
for everyday objects.
