In just five simple steps, children can make a variety of festive holiday crafts such as a reindeer and sleigh, a Christmas tree, and a winter wonderland out of everyday household objects. Fourteen projects make clever use of commonly available materials and simple tools, turning empty toilet paper rolls, clothespins, 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. A ranking system for craft difficulty levels is included, from one star to four stars, for stress-free project selection.
