When selecting an art and craft book for the children I consider the book very carefully. What I look for are projects that are simple, require no or a little adult help, use easily sourced materials (recycled preferably) and have a purpose to them. Maggy delivers this and more! This book is fantastic as it is full of projects that can be played with!
I am totally obsessed with owls, in fact, I am currently on a mission called '40 for 40'. The goal is to collect 40 owls by my 40th birthday in May next year (between you and me, I think I've already achieved it). To increase the challenge of this mission some of these owls need to be handmade, so when I received my excerpt and it was The Owl and the Pussycat I knew that was the project for me! Yeah, okay I did say this was a kids craft book but this is OWLS! Anyway, I am totally going to create this for the kids (don't us crafty mama's ALWAYS create for others and never for ourselves).
