During my stint as a youth librarian, I was all about turning regular household trash into projects for the kids. A milk carton project would fit right in. However, take a look at some of the examples: a microwave? A tv? However, the craft that takes the cake is Mr. and Mrs. Earhead. What’s with the oversized ears?
A couple of these projects are okay and the concept is good. I would have liked to see simpler instructions for the younger set. Almost all of these projects require a knife or some kind of ice pick (for holes, I’m guessing). I am a bit biased when I think crafts should be simple and age appropriate. Too many instructions or pieces can be frustrating. This is what I say when the real answer is that I can’t manage a complex craft.
