Pick of the week: Green Crafts for Kids

We live in a world where television and video games are an integral part of a child’s daily schedule. The average American youth watches an alarming 1,500 hours of television a year. Not only does television hinder a child’s physical prowess, but it also stifles their imaginative and naturally inventive spirit. Kickstart your little one’s creative genius with Cico Books’ Green Crafts For Children.

Written by Emma Hardy, this book contains 35 step-by-step artistic projects for children aged 2 and over. Share any craft with your child and exercise their imagination while also fostering their appreciation of all things green!
