     This simple technique reminds me of a combination of rug hooking and making PlushCraft® pillows – creating soft texture with yarn loops, but by using a special tool to push the yarn through the burlap backing. The tool is like an awl with a hollow handle. Thread the yarn through, punch it through the fabric to create a yarn loop. More yarn will thread through the handle so you can keep going until it’s time to switch colors. The tool is notched so you create evenly sized loops every time.
      Everything you need to make a 9x9” pillow is included: 5 colors of super soft chenille yarn (pink, yellow, purple, green, and white), burlap, stuffing, felt, embroidery floss, a needle, 8 design templates, and a reusable frame and punch tool. Although the kit only includes supplies for one pillow, you could easily purchase additional supplies and create an endless amount of pillows. Make the first one for yourself, then give the rest as gifts to friends and family! – Laura

    Use the super-easy knitting loom to create flat pieces of knitting, then combine them to make an adorable pet sweater for a stuffed animal or pet up to 30lbs! The simplicity and versatility of this project makes it a fun craft, and extra yarn could be bought to make more. Make one for yourself, then use your new skills to make thoughtful gifts for furry friends. Includes 2.3 oz of yarn, buttons, needle, knitting loom and hook, instructions, and a fun drawstring bag to keep in all in. Great for on the go! – Laura

      This is your project and lesson guide for 3rd grade Memoria Press curriculum. It includes 14 projects each to be completed in a 30-45 minute lesson with about 1-15 students. You can easily use this book at home with one or a few children--no problem. A materials list is at the front of the book and includes pretty common household art supplies like white paper, construction paper, scissors, brushes, glue and paints. A few items you will also need are butcher paper, colored chalk, decoupage glue, glow in the dark paint, a hole puncher, wood skewers and yarn. The goal is to build a general understanding of color theory, basic art techniques, and some art history that will reinforce your MP curriculum. All you need to know as the teacher is right there on the lesson page for you. You are told what to say and given the answers to questions you will ask the students. Easy-peasy even for the non-artiste instructor! In the back are some reproducible templates to use in the activities, followed by short quizzes over the lesson content. These are well organized lessons that will be a peach to implement. Specific books mentioned in the lessons are Charlotte’s Web and The Moffats. 75pp, sc ~ Sara

    Discover what it was like to live in America during the 16th and 17th century with this history project book. A timeline of key dates of colonial America and a brief overview of the thirteen colonies at the front puts the events and years into perspective, while the first chapter completes the foundation by providing a fascinating account of how colonial America came to exist and how life there began. The remaining seven chapters each focus on one aspect of life in colonial America, such as life in a colonial home, colonial clothes, work, communication, or the kids of the colonial days. Each of these chapters provides interesting passages on the respective part of life surrounded by features such as colonial words to know, spotlight on famous colonists, and hands-on projects that bring what you read to real life. Construct your own miniature wattle and daub house as you learn about colonial homes, sip your own homemade apple cider while reading about colonial farms and gardens, and make your own yarn, cloth, and dye just as the colonists did while dressed as a colonist with the help of other projects in the colonial clothes chapter. Fort-four projects in all provide plenty of original activities to recreate life in colonial America. Steph

    C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia books are so rich in visual imagery and fascinating characters, it seems completely natural to incorporate art and crafts to bring the subjects to life. Thanks to Sharon Jeffus, you can easily do this, whether you're studying the books in school or just reading them for pleasure. In 56 pages, Sharon offers a variety of ways students can apply their own creativity to the subjects of Narnia, whether it be through pencil and paper, paint, clay, cardboard, or a craft project. Subjects examined are lions, heraldry, knights, armor, weapons, crowns, thrones, portraits, printing, rabbits, beavers, gargoyles, fauns, stags, trees, castles, birds, ancient writing, dragons, unicorns, and maps. Along the way, Sharon mixes in art concepts, including perspective, shading, using a grid, scale, and positive and negative space. Because the topics are chosen from the Narnia books, this is not a cohesive art program; rather, it's set up as a book you can wander through as you read through the Narnia books, choosing topics that suit your fancy. Topical lessons vary quite a bit in content, and may include a craft project, a drawing challenge, thought-provoking questions, creative challenges, a website to look up works of art, examining a given picture, learning an art principle, etc. The suggested activities are very open-ended, and would be easy to tailor to children of different ages. Occasionally, several different activity options are offered for a topic; some will appeal more to older children, and some to younger children. The instructions for an activity are very simple and freeform (more like suggestions), allowing as much adaptation as you want. As with their other very practical art books, you won't need any special art equipment for the lessons, just pencils, drawing paper, construction paper, glue, yarn, markers, crayons, and anything else you'd like to use. Also available is a CD-ROM which contains the entire text of the book in electronic form. If you're anxious to explore Narnia with all of your senses and sharpen your artistic skills at the same time, you'll enjoy using this book as an art companion.
