We love to read and share books here at the gingerbread house blog. We were recently offered the chance to review a new book called The Kids’ Book of Paper Love: Write. Craft. Play. Share. Both my children love to be creative so I knew they would enjoy this book.
The Kids’ Book of Paper Love
The Kids’ Book of Paper Love is overflowing with 180 pages of fun and pull-out activities for writing, drawing, folding, crafting, playing and sharing. There’s a paper goody on every single page! The authors Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst are the creative directors of Flow magazine, an international publication celebrating creativity, mindfulness, and life’s little pleasures that is based in the Netherlands.
A perfect break from screens, The Kids’ Book of Paper Love is designed as a creative adventure, and the authors’ believe that the process of making things with your hands can make you happy – this is definitely something that we believe in too!
Projects in the book range from making a paper chain to a foldable house, crafting 3D paper frames to DIY paper beads, playing with a boredom buster cube and photo booth props, sharing fruit-shapes gift tags and a bouquet of flowers. In keeping with the Flow tradition, there are tons of signature pull-out goodies: metallic paper, glitter stickers, neon postcards, a fold-out banner, a DIY storybook and many more.
With half term coming up next week I know we will be working our way through some of the projects in this book. The book is fun and colourful with so many different projects to keep the kids busy.
