Get Crafty Review + Giveaway

Although we are quite the 'artsy-craftsy' family with a giant stash of art supplies and several shelves worth of art and craft books we are always excited to add to our collection. There is no such thing as too much inspiration! I am always looking for new things to do with my girls. Especially over incredibly long school holidays... So I was absolutely thrilled when fellow crafty-parenting blogger, Ali Coghlan's debut craft book - Get Crafty - landed on my desk last week.
This gorgeous tome is bright and beautiful and absolutely jam-packed with incredibly do-able crafts. The emphasis is very much on using inexpensive products and recyclables to create some gorgeous projects but also to use crafting time as quality family time.

There are ideas for a wide range of ages. For the very little there's edible paint, easy-printing and jelly play dough to be made. For the slightly bigger kids there are kites, pirate hats and puppets. There are also great ideas for older children such as the advent calendar, papier maché masks and vase. Even grown-ups will enjoy making some of the projects.
I made the fringed garland (on page 103) over the weekend. I intended to use it as a decoration for Lile and Sábha's upcoming birthday party but I've hung it up in my office now and I love it so much I'm loathe to take it down!
I've also earmarked the 'Edible Crowns' as a potential party activity for the girls' birthday which I think would go down a storm! 

I know we'll get a lot of mileage out of the 40 different projects in this lovely book for a long time to come. I'm so thrilled for Ali and wish her every success with the book.

Now for the best bit - I have a copy of this fantastic new book to give away courtesy of Ali and Mercier Press, her publisher.
