    Transparent tracing paper can be used for sketches and overlays. Make an overlay of different possible images and try them out on a background. Draw one jungle animal on a page and put them over a rainforest background to find the right positioning. Write a quote from a book or a favorite poem on a piece of this paper, lay it over a photograph, frame it and give as a gift. There are a lot of possibilities with this transparent paper. ~ Sara

    A popular craft project is now accessible to younger artists! This kit includes everything you need to make several string art pieces. Instead of wood and nails, use the included custom pin-pushing tool to place pins into cardboard backs, then follow the adorable templates to make a variety of shapes. There are 500 pins, 10 colors of string, 6 project boards, background and tracing paper, and a 56 page booklet with all kinds of tips to get you started. I absolutely enjoyed making my scribble star, and I'm sure you'll enjoy crafting a fox, heart, owl, or other design! Finished projects are approximately 4"x5.5" and 4.5"x7". - Laura

    Known for their original ideas, this Klutz book is no exception. Rather than your traditional paper doll book, this book holds 6 dolls (plus 3 babies and two pets) and 14 pages (front and back) of clothing items and accessories. The dolls are reversible, with a printed face on one side, and the other blank for you to fill in. A page of face ideas is included in case you have trouble portraying just the right expression. Then come the clothes! The 14 pages include male and female clothing, including everyday clothes, dress-up clothes, cowboy/girl clothes, gowns and suits, winter clothes, sports uniforms, swimwear, pajamas, and baby clothes. (The outfits allow the dolls to dress-up as wizards or witches, but you can easily remove these.) You can also expand this wardrobe by designing your own clothes by tracing, decorating, and coloring your own patterns. Also provided are tons of accessories, from shoes, hats, and eyewear to handbags, gloves, and sports equipment. Another two-sided page is devoted to hair - you choose the styles you want. There are 32 different styles, for guys and girls, long and short, in 6 different shades. Hair doodles, beards, and mustaches are included. These are neither sticker nor fold-the-tabs-down paper dolls. A page of special stickers allows you to put sticky tape on the dolls wherever necessary to accessorize them. You can dress and re-dress them as many times as you want, and if the sticky wears off you simply peel off that piece of tape and replace it with another. (264 are included, and if you run out, simply order more from Klutz.) Also included are six attractive backdrops (stage, ballroom, park, winter, beach, and bedroom scenes) and a fold out closet to store the clothes. - Melissa

    This is one of those inexpensive, craft room staples that once you have used it, you will find loads of projects to use it for! It is a liquid that, when dry, creates a thick, shiny, clear coating onto your paper crafts, jewelry, photo art or what have you. You could tint it blue and use it for water in a diorama with your Safari animal figures! It's great for holding beads or glitter in place. Save the time of layering coat after coat onto your projects. Drying time will vary according to thickness. ~ Sara

    Or, in home school language: a literature-based unit study. This one uses some of my very favorite children's picture books (see list below). For each of the 18 books, there's a story summary and a "before the story", "during the story" and "after the story" suggestion. A helpful shaded box points out themes, skills, vocabulary, and related books. This is followed by "connections" to curriculum areas including: language arts, math, science, problem-solving and social skills, fine motor, gross motor, visual discrimination, art, and creative dramatics. Reproducible activity pages are provided for some of these. This is great for preschool, as you can center one or several days around these books, themes and activities – even an entire week if you integrate the related literature selections. As an example, for If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, emphasized themes are: being a good host, patience, real and fantasy. Skills focused on are making predictions, alphabet, counting, biology, and manners. Special vocabulary is carried away, comfortable, finished, mustache, remind. Related books include If You Take a Mouse to School and If You Give a Moose a Muffin. Before reading the book, you ask your child to predict what might happen if they gave a mouse a cookie and relate that to what they do when they get a cookie. During the story, you take advantage of the many "cliffhangers" in the book, allowing children to guess at the sentence endings before turning the page. After the story, the author suggests additional readings (this is because children have such fun with the outlandish turns of events – most stories have other activities in this section). There are two Language Arts Connections; one is playing with magnetic letters on a cookie sheet (related to the drawn red letters and cookies on the book cover); the other is to make alphabet cookies (sounds yummy!). For a math activity, there's a reproducible page for children to match the chocolate chip cookies with the same number of chips. Science Connections have you researching what mice really eat. If you have access to a mouse, the book suggests experimenting with various foods. If not, you'll have to settle for using another book, using the internet, or visiting a pet store. In Problem-Solving and Social Skills Connections, children practice being good hosts or hostesses. You can play the mouse and let your child entertain you (tea party, anyone)? Then, as the mouse does in the story, children practice fine motor skills by drawing pictures of a scene from the book or of their family as the mouse does. Children practice writing their names (using tracing paper), tape it to the artwork, and then to the refrigerator, just like mouse. For Gross Motor Connections, you again mimic the mouse, this time in sweeping and cleaning (remember, the mouse got carried away and swept the entire house!). The book suggests supplementing with a little house-sweeping music of your choice. In Art Connections, children construct Barbershop Portraits as you reread the book, paying special attention to the part where mouse trims his hair. Children paste long strands of yarn to self-portraits for hair (deliberately making the hair in need of a trim). After the glue dries, children use safety scissors to "cut" their hair to a desired length. In Creative Dramatics Connections children practice proper mealtime manners. After rereading the section of the book where mouse asks for a straw and a napkin with his cookie snack, you provide yourself and your child(ren) with paper plates, empty cups and straws, and napkins. Then you pretend to be a group of mice, eating cookies and drinking milk, demonstrating how to eat a cookie over your plate, use your napkin and drink properly with a straw. If children do well, follow through with real cookies and milk then show children how to clean up after the meal. A final reproducible page has children color the pictures that show how someone in the family takes care of them (also great as a discussion starter).

    Students experience art through history by participating in projects highlighting techniques and styles through the ages. Comprehensive in scope, the book begins with prehistoric art and progresses through the late 20th century. Each major period (Ancient World, Middle Ages, World Beyond Europe, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo, Romantic, Impressionism & Post-Impressionism, Early 20th Century, Late 20th Century) is further divided into periods, locations, or schools of art. Each major section and sub-section begins with background information to set the stage. Within each sub-section are one or many projects designed to help students understand and appreciate concepts and methods used in art of all kinds (not limited to paintings). There are 80 different projects in all. Materials needed for the project are listed first, followed by a sample of the artwork and narrative description highlighting the type of art, method used to create it, a particular technique or feature, etc. Directions and instructions are then provided for completing a project simulating the art or concepts. To get the full visual impact of works referenced you will have to find reproductions, since the author provides only line drawings of the art. This is purposeful, since the pages are intended to be reproducible student handouts - in some cases, artwork is done directly on the page. Projects vary from simple drawings to elaborate construction. A few are extremely ambitious, but rather accurately impart the amount of effort involved in creating the type of art being studied. So much is included here that the best I can do is describe a few projects. The first project is Prehistoric Painting. Students make earth-pigment powders using brick, unglazed tile, or rock that is easily filed. A flat stone is used for a "canvas" to recreate a simple cave painting of an animal. The outline is drawn in charcoal or charcoal pencil. Earth powders are mixed with honey (just like they did way back then), and used to color within the outline. Project #20 (from Gothic Art) is creating a stained glass window using tracing paper, felt tip pens, and black construction paper. During the Italian Renaissance period (1400-1600) projects include Shading and Foreshortening, Renaissance Composition, Linear Perspective, Fresco Cartoon (mimicking the process by which frescoes where outlined before being painted), creating a picture based on one of many of Leonardo da Vinci's observations and ideas, and making a model of one of da Vinci's inventions. Project #53 has students use broad felt-tipped pens to try out Impressionist techniques on a basic line-drawn scene. I'm sure students could come up with some outlandish ideas for the Dada art project (Early 20th Century), inspired by Man Ray's Gift (an iron with tacks fixed to the bottom - a study in irony). Students will come back to earth by Project #80 (inspired by Spiral Jetty, an abstract sculpture formed with rocks and earth in Utah's Great Salt Lake) which focuses on creating art from/in nature. Students create their own earthwork, planning a simple tabletop design using stones, sand, gravel, dirt, and similar natural materials. (I have an excellent natural "collage" on my window right now - I call it The Undersides of Many Tree Frogs).
