Milk Carton Mania by Christine M. Irvin

Do you have a crafty child or one who wants to be? This book will give them 14 different craft projects for using your used milk or juice cartons. Each project gives you step by step instructions with pictures. Directions are simple and easy to read; a child could actually do the project with no or little help from the parent. Most of the needed items are things you probably have around your house or can purchase at low cost at your local store. What a great way to recycle unwanted cartons.
We actually did the Bird Feeder Project. The instructions were very easy to follow. I actually had my 11 year old read the directions as we all worked on it together. We plan to try the Happy House Project next, and maybe even go for a whole town for my boys to play with their action figures. I loved the simplicity of the whole book and the other ideas the author included with each project(ranging from extra decorating to extra activities to complement the project.)
What a wonderful resource for any parent, teacher, homeschooler, or child.
This is not the authors only book. Look for her other Craft Mania books:
* Cardboard Tube Mania
* Craft Stick Mania
* Egg Carton Mania
* Paper Cup Mania
* Paper Plate Mania
* Pie Pan Mania
* Pipe Cleaner Mania
This book can be purchased from Scholastic, Amazon or other book resources for $6.95.
*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.
