“Make and do 365”
Just Amazing!
“365 things to make and do”
“365 things to make and do”
My daughter and I love your make and do books. I spend hours with my daughter making things from them, she has just turned 4yrs old. I love the fact it makes art easy and enjoyable because in the past before discovering Usborne then I struggled for art and craft ideas. My daughter Jessica was a fan at 2 yrs old and spent hours with Usborne sticker books which I think helped her fine motor skills. I loved them because it gave me a breather. I can't thank you enough for all the fun you have given my child {and me}, and if she doesn't excel in Art at school I shall be surprised. Big Big fan. Angela
“365 things to make and do”
The best craft book ever! Amazing! I like how you make the finger painting snowmen and penguins, it was so fun.
“365 things to make and do”
I love this book! I actually won this book. My favourite page to do is 126 and 127. The title of that page is called paper weaving. I haven't done everything in the book. I like to draw pictures from the book. My friends like it too.
I love this book especially on pages 24 and 25. I love drawing them! There are loads of ideas you can pick out and do with your class or with a club or something like that or even at home I love this book I would recommend you people who are reading this now to buy it!!
“365 Things to Make and Do”
This is a fabulous and simple art and craft ideas book. I am a school teacher and let the children in my class loose with this book and they love to try the easy activities that are almost guaranteed an excellent result. We all love it!

Press reviews

“It is lovely to see the joy brought to children by making things as simple as doodle birds, paper snowflakes, paper chains and quilled cards. So effective yet oh, so simple! My particular favourite was making animals out of leaf prints whereby you develop your animal from the print made by one leaf: long leaves become giraffes; rounded leaves become lions, and so on. Families rating: 6 out of 6 >>”
