Great book – D.I.Y. Kids

January 17, 2008 at 1:00 am Leave a comment

D.I.Y. Kids aims to trigger imaginative play, without requiring fees, teams, or a minivan. It’s for parents, teachers, aunts and uncles, friends and baby-sitters, neighbors and citizens—anyone who wants to create a better world not only for, but also with, the next generation. Most of all, it’s for kids who want to make their mark (and make a difference) by exercising the arts of design with wit, intelligence, and style.” – Ellen & Julia Upton

One of Scholastic Book’s best of 2007, D.I.Y. Kids is the perfect companion to an uninspired rainy day stuck indoors with your kids. What a great way to get the creative juices flowing and a vehicle to interact on a really fun level. Rather than turning on the telly or the latest electronic toy, why not recycle old household objects and packaging to create something entirely unique.

A great place to get extra materials here in Sydney is at Reverse Garbage located in Marrackville. Reverse Garbage is a not-for-profit co-operative that sells industrial discards, off-cuts and over-runs to the public for creative and practical uses, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
