Our customer reviews

DREAM BEDROOM is another great book in the ECOCRAFTS series, designed to give those interested in creating useful objects a way to make the Earth a better place by recycling. Besides the helpful hints included throughout the book (such as looking for used toys or swapping \"old\" toys for \"new\" ones with friends), the book includes several activities to get those creative juices flowing. Although the crafts listed in the book are designed to be used to enhance your dream bedroom, several items can be used in numerous places throughout the house, or even given as gifts. Included in the book are: a piggy bank, a file holder, jewelry stand, space station, treasure chest, desk organizer, photo frame, cactus, a door hanger, a flag, wall organizer, and a stool or footrest. This is the perfect book for artists and creators of any age, from young children working with adult supervision to adults looking for a fun and eco-friendly new hobby. My ten-year-old son has already started working on the treasure chest, and my six-year-old daughter can\'t wait to make the stool and jewelry stand. If you enjoy this book, I highly recommend pairing it up with another ECOCRAFTS book, GORGEOUS GIFTS.show more
