What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I work with children as a teacher, it is difficult to find craft projects that are affordable, but also age appropriate. This method holds the interests of preschoolers to preteen children. They can easily follow the instructions and do most of the work independently, as long as some preparation work is completed by the teacher for the younger children. The finished product cannot be washed due to the cardstock, but should last for several years.
