Are you going to need to entertain children or grandchildren this summer? If so, then you might want to think about picking up a copy of Lark's Craft Camp. There are over 40 projects, arranged in four sections of increasing difficulty, time consumption, and adult help needed.
The Basics section in the beginning covers the materials you will need. They are mostly all easily found locally in supermarkets, hardware and craft stores, so you won't spend all your time trying to source the projects.
The projects are marked as to which must have adult supervision. They are designed by many different designers, so you will get a wide variety of styles and themes.
I really like these milk carton tea lights, shown above. I can see making those with my own granddaughter this summer. And for those of you who like polymer clay, look at these cute bookmarks below:
Overall, this is a very enjoyable volume, and I am quite happy to have some of the suggestions for our family vacay this summer!
