Create with Maisy (Maisy First Arts-And-Crafts Books)by Lucy Cousins
Synopses & Reviews
Let Maisy show you how! Easy, safe, and fun, these craft projects for the very young were put together and photographed by Lucy Cousins herself.
Why does Maisy keep a Big Box of Everything, filled with glitter, sequins, foil, stickers, paint, brushes, paper, and tons more stuff? Because she loves to make things! Children as young as two will be thrilled to follow her lead, thanks to a brand-new Maisy format featuring both familiar illustrations and photographs by Lucy Cousins. Here are crystal-clear steps for creating seventeen simple crafts, highlighted by photos of the end result. Enjoy making things from painted pebbles to paper lanterns, food collages to feathered masks, and wax-relief paintings to wonderful vegetable animals. As spectacular looking as it is hands-on, here is an activity book sure to please parents as much as it does Maisys little fans.
"Maisy the mouse hosts this oversize book, which offers directions for 17 simple craft projects. Primary-colored spreads on glossy pages combine photographs of the materials needed and finished products with Cousins's trademark thickly outlined, gouache animal characters. Maisy's projects include prints made from paint and pieces of sliced fruit and vegetables; masks constructed from paper plates, popsicle sticks, and feathers; and a pasta necklace. All of the crafts are within the grasp of preschool-aged learners, while forming a foundation for creative experimentation. Ages 4 — up. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
