Make art with your hands and feet! is an art pad with a difference. The reader is encouraged to draw around his or her fingers, thumbs, hands, toes or feet to complete the 32 pictures. Hand- and finger-prints can be made with paint, too. Once the images are complete the pages can be personalized with the childs name and/or messages for family and friends, and torn out to be given as gifts, or simply stuck on the wall. Some pages have a space for the readers age to be inserted, giving them a unique and personal record. The reader is called on to complete the zany images, from reindeer with hand- print antlers to foot-print ghosts, and from jelly-fish thumbs to finger space rockets. There are whole families of toes too. Each picture has an icon to show the child what to do, whether to draw around or print with their hands, fingers, thumbs, toes or feet.
Based on the idea of the seaside photo booth, Making Faces! is a fill-in art pad that's hands on and great fun. There are 32 pictures to complete. At the beginning of the book, a page explains how the book works and suggests ideas for colouring in the pages. Children complete a picture, then tear off the sheet and poke their face through the hole. They turn themselves into kings and queens wearing crowns, astronauts wearing bubble helmets, and flowers with pretty petals. They colour in floppy ears to become rabbits, shaggy manes to become lions and pointy horns to become dinosaurs. The pictures can be personalized with messages to give to family and friends.
This book is packed with fill-in inspirational grids and patterns, providing all the tools needed to create a riot of geometric and free-flowing designs, from a robot workshop to a city of 3-D skyscrapers. There are grids with spirals, grids with spots, cross-hatches, triangles, letter-shapes, blobs and more...Children start by following the picture ideas in the book, then come up with their own creative ideas.
Funny face! is an activity book based on visual jokes. Children draw, fold and colour to make surprising and funny things happen to all kinds of faces on the page. The inspired use of die cuts, folds and split pages helps children reveal a variety of visual gags; for example: doodling through a pair of die- cut shaggy eyebrows on one picture draws a droopy moustache on a picture on the page below; opening up a gatefold turns a little boys tiny ears into giant ones. More funny faces appear on pages split horizontally into three. Turning the sections back and forth creates mixed-up faces with different hats, noses and beards. Pages fold vertically to create characters with large noses or thought-bubble hair. The child is challenged to keep looking until they find all the jokes and tricks. The layout is generous enough to allow children to add their own doodling and colouring too.
