PRODUCT: Usborne - 1000 Things to Make and Do (www.usborne.com)Usborne 1000 Things to Make and Do

DESCRIPTION: A 368-page spiral-bound activity book with 1000 ideas for things for children to make and do. Suitable for children aged 5 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: Your children will never be bored again with this wonderful hardback activity book from Usborne books!

The book focuses entirely on providing you and your child with a multitude of ideas for things to make, design and do, and as such is a fantastic resource to turn to on a rainy day.

The book is split into 188 'themes', listed in a contents page at the front, each of which encompasses a number of different but related activities under its heading.

These activities cover a wide variety including, among other things, drawings, paintings, prints, doodles and collages, as well as making stencils, models, decorations, masks and cards. An index at the back of the book helps your child to find or choose a particular activity quickly, and its spiral binding enables the book to be laid flat on tables and work surfaces for easy use.

The book includes wonderful use of colours, illustrations, step-by-step instructions and suggestions to guide your child through the activities in a simple and easy-to-follow way, and the activities are also perfect for stimulating children's imaginations to create their own original pieces of art.

We think this is an amazing art and craft book to keep your child fully entertained during holidays, rainy days and even play days with friends. The book contains a fantastic number of imaginative and inspiring child-friendly activities which produce some fantastic results, and there is something to suit boys and girls of all ages and abilities, whether completing on their own or under adult supervision.

BAD POINTS: The book might benefit from listing under each theme the main equipment that is required for the activities.

PRICE: £20
