Project Kid book giveaway on aliceandlois.com

We’re so happy to have a giveaway today with Amanda Kingloff’s new book, Project Kid: 100 Ingenious Crafts for Family FunThis book is chock-full of crafts for kids. Amanda is the former lifestyle director at Parents magazine who brings tons of experience and knowledge of kid crafting to this book.

She creates 100 diverse projects for the little ones to do with their parents, to some amazing new ideas that older kids can work on all on their own. Many of her projects are so visually pleasing they look like they were created by adults – you’d want to display them as you would a treasured Etsy purchase.

One thing I love about this book is that she has an entire section dedicated to recycling everyday objects and turning them into an art project. There’s a bottle rocket made out of a sock (don’t we all have a missing sock pile) and a soap bottle. Then I adore the idea of taking old playdough caps and transforming them into a modern family tree. She inspires you to look at your recycling bin in a new light. Turn those cracker boxes and cereal boxes into a village.

It’s perfect timing for this book to be released as I’m stockpiling ideas for art projects this summer. I can’t wait to make the newspaper pirate ship with Calla, and the fairy wreath of course. And how fun it will be to gather fallen tree branches on hikes this summer and transform them into colorfully wrapped art.

Enter below for your chance to win a copy of PROJECT KID. The winner will be announced next Wednesday, April 16. Congratulations to Carrie B!!! You are the winner! Look for an email from us. Giveaway for US residents onlyGood luck! –Melissa

    This would be such a great book to use with all my grandchildren. I’d mostly use it for my granddaughter, along with her Mother since they are living here along with one of my sons. We’re always looking for something to keep her busy and away from the tv and out of things she’s not supposed to touch.

    Thanks for the chance to win this awesome
    Book ladies! This would be a great resource for the Head Start home visitors that I work with. One of their desired outcomes with families is to teach parents how to be their child’s first teacher. All of our families are at or below the poverty level, so using found items at home is a must!
