This title includes lots of things to make and do, using the packaging and everyday items we usually throw away.
You can create your own musical instruments, puppets, masks, decorations, clothes, games and toys.
You can construct a space station out of cardboard boxes, tin-can stilts, a cotton-reel robot, a mobile of straws, a pinball machine using rubber bands, and much more.
It features clear step-by-step photographs that illustrate every project.
It is packed with recycling ideas, hints, tips and advice, so that you can help to save the planet and have fun at the same time!
Everyone knows how important recycling is for the environment.
Now you can help to conserve valuable resources by reusing things that you would previously have thrown in the waste bin without a second thought.
Have you ever considered creating your own sparkling bracelets, or starting up a rock band with drums, guitars and tambourines that you made yourself?
For those of you who enjoy acting, there are puppets, a ranch with clothes-peg cowboys, and paper-bag animal masks.
You can even fashion a beautiful scarf to keep you warm, and a pompom hat using an old pair of wool tights. Marion Elliot shows you how to create these projects, and many more, in easy-to-follow steps.
They are all simple and cheap to make, and require no special skills.
With this crafty book, you will be able to turn junk into treasures that you will want to keep for ever!
