If you are the fan of the Maisy series or have never heard of it. This is a wonderful first for the Maisy series in this new cute Arts-and-Crafts book. Included here are easy, safe, and fun craft projects that will entertain your young children for hours. They were even put together and photographed by Lucy Cousins herself. If you are looking to entertain and also learn, then I would give this book a look for sure. I can already pick out which ones my daughter is going to love! Can’t wait!
“Why does Maisy keep a Big Box of Everything, filled with glitter, sequins, foil, stickers, paint, brushes, paper, and tons more stuff? Because she loves to make things! Children as young as two will be thrilled to follow her lead, thanks to a brand-new Maisy format featuring both familiar illustrations and photographs by Lucy Cousins. Here are crystal-clear steps for creating seventeen simple crafts, highlighted by photos of the end result. Enjoy making things from painted pebbles to paper lanterns, food collages to feathered masks, and wax-relief paintings to wonderful vegetable animals. As spectacular looking as it is hands-on, here is an activity book sure to please parents as much as it does Maisy’s little fans.”
