Wild Crafts for Kids

by  Gospel Light

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Gospel Light's Wild Crafts for Kids includes 45 crafts for children from preschool through sixth grade. With a safari theme, this book can supplement any curriculum or be used as an entire VBS program (Kingdom of the Son).

With old standard crafts (praise drum; flutterby butterfly; plaques; and safari box) plus great new ideas (mankala game board; batik cloth; decorated ostrich egg; safari fun binoculars; heavy hippo doorstop, woven basket, elephant stompers, and giraffe tape measure), these crafts are created from easy-to-find items and are lots of fun.

This resource contains easy-to-follow instructions, reproducibles, age/grade level characteristics, pre-made labels, enrichment ideas, and devotions included with every craft. In addition to the crafts themselves, Gospel Light has provided a complete VBS schedule, overview, leader's guides, and session handouts. This little book is packed with great resources. Information on using the book at home with your child is also included.

My eight-year-old confiscated the book on sight and began with the first craft: the praise drum. She made it in about fifteen minutes with minimal assistance. While reviewing the other crafts, I got excited about doing the projects with her. These are useful and fun crafts, not just paper trash to be disposed of when the child is not looking. From wooden journals to picture frames, bookmarks to note holders, these crafts are great fun for kids of all ages. I highly recommend this book to any who need hands-on activities for kids. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book
