Jazzy Jewellery: Eco Crafts
"EcoCrafts" is an innovative series that shows children how to recycle everyday objects such as newspapers, bottle tops, glass jars and CDs into stylish, highly individual gifts and decorations that won't be found in any store. "Jazzy Jewellery" contains 12 ideas for funky, eco-friendly accessories - perfect as original fashion statements to swap and share, or as presents for friends and relatives. From cute and colourful party items to Mother's Day gift ideas, these accessible and simple-to-follow projects will keep children engrossed for hours, as well as saving them money and helping the environment.
"Wonderful ways to get your children creatively re-using stuff that would end up in the recycling box - or worse, the dustbin. Plus EcoFacts to get them thinking as they devise their own inspiring junk designs." Friends of the Earth"
