Children can develop fine motor skills and artistic skills by making these crafts. Hedgehogs, lions, and polar bears are some of the items to create. The hedgehog project, which encourages children to decorate it with items found in nature like twigs and seeds, is perfection. Full-color pictures show the steps and simple instructions are provided for each craft. The book opens with step-by-step basic paper folding techniques, such as curls, which can be created by wrapping a strip of paper around a pencil. Materials include common household items like paper plates, tissue paper, and cardboard tubes, and kids’ craft items such as pipe cleaners and buttons. The back of the book contains templates for the items, so the work can be used multiple times. It is visually appealing and the instructions are easy to follow.
