PBS KIDS Super Simple Crafts: Sticks and Stones uses common backyard finds as a jumping off point for wonderful craft projects--from simple painted rocks and pine cone critters to terrariums and bird feeders. The act of gathering materials encourages kids to explore and enjoy the outside world. They may be tasked with finding a colorful leaves or rocks of a certain shape, or an armful of twigs--and they will learn about these items along the way. Every project comes with simple, step-by-step directions and a finish photo. Educational, entertaining activities throughout the book make the entire process (gathering materials, creating projects, and then enjoying the finished product) fun and creative. The kit components--to be used with pebbles, twigs, and other natural materials along with some basic household recyclables--include paint pots, paintbrushes, googly eyes, felt, and glue.
