Now I have to admit, I'm not the craftiest of mothers, letting my son do the majority of his art and craft time in preschool. However, at Christmas I decided that I should step up my game, buying him some art and craft supplies for him to use and home (which he did, as you can see from the paint splattered background) but I've been wanting to do some proper crafts with him and Get Crafty is full of inspiration.
Get Crafty has over 40 craft ideas and each one is laid out in a simple step by step guide, accompanied by some beautiful, colourful pictures. Each craft also tells you what's needed before you begin and most items are either things you can reuse from around the home, collect from nature or that you can find relatively cheaply in pound shops.
Congratulations to Ali on such a wonderful book, it truly is inspiring, especially to the mummies like myself who want to be crafty with their little ones but don't really know where to begin.
Get Crafty by Ali Coghlan is published by Mercier Press and is available in all good book stores nationwide for €14.99.
