Lots of children's craft books lend themselves to more girlie activities but authors Sara Duchars and Sarah Marks have decided to create a new type of book aimed at boys. Offering fun crafts for both boys and girls, the book, Boycraft, encourages boys to take up new skills such as sewing, whilst still making things they'll love like felt hats and vampire capes.
Throughout the book Sara and Sarah offer six categories of craft skills to learn using paper, wood and wool. The categories, entitled 'Stitch craft', 'Paper craft', 'Creepy craft', 'Wood craft', 'Model craft' and 'Woolly craft', include how to papier mâché, make model spiders, create peg doll figures and denim duffle bags, to name just a few.
A colourful and eye-catching read for young boys and girls, Boy Craft is a must-have guide to activities and crafts perfect to try at anytime of year using recyclable materials, and, with a little help from a parent, mini masterpieces that they can reuse. Great for entertaining a group of friends or just for fun on a rainy day, the book has something for every little boy to enjoy.
Boycraft by Sara Duchars and Sarah Marks, published by Frances Lincoln Limited, is available at www.franceslincoln.com, RRP £12.99.
