Lazing on a Sunday Crafternoon: Little projects for people with just a little time and a little skill (kindle edition from Amazon), by Eliza Muldoon published by Allen and Unwin.

Lazing on a Sunday Crafternoon by Eliza Muldoon is a collection of 52 craft ideas for you to make with a child helper. The book is beautifully set out and each project requires only simple crafting skills. I have been looking for a long time for ideas to make projects with my young daughters that don’t require too many materials and aren’t too complex for small hands to do most of the work on their own. This book provides that solution.

Apart from the gorgeous projects, for me, the best part of the book is the budget-friendly nature. Almost all of the projects can be made from materials already in the house or that can be found easily at a thrift store, apart from being low-cost, this also means that if the rain sets in, we are able to make and create without a trip to fetch supplies.

I took the lazing part a little too seriously and spent my Sunday afternoon lounging about on the back lawn reading this book while the girls played, now I should really and go and actually make something rather than just sitting with a cup of tea in hand!
