LET'S MARK ART WITH EVERYDAY THINGS shows you how to use object found lying around, from cardboard and coins to leaves and vegetables, to make ice-cream bunting, forky faces, pasta prints, a soapy solar system, leafy insects and much, much more. Techniques include printing, collage, making rubbings and paint-scraping - used in ingenious ways for fantastic results! A collection of fun, simple, inexpensive craft projects, ideal for time-poor parents and budget-challenged schools, promoting reuse and recycling. Beautifully designed, the book is clearly and appealingly illustrated with step-by-step instructions and engaging artwork. Each activity is straightforward and achievable, and as such is therapeutic for stressed or anxious children, allowing them to make things by themselves, and to have confidence in their own abilities. Other titles in the series include LET'S MARK ART WITH HANDS AND FEET, LET'S MAKE ART WITH EVERYDAY THINGS and LET'S MAKE ART WITH SCRAP PAPER, so there's a whole load of upcycling fun to be had!
