Football things to make and do

Football Things to Make and Do - Usborne Activities

This is a brand new addition to the best-selling "Usborne Activities" series. It is guaranteed to have young children cheering in the terraces with its football themed activities, including a muddy training ground painting, a penalty shoot-out card and footballer finger puppets. Every activity is clearly and vividly illustrated in an appealing and colourful style, with easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. It contains fantastic football stickers that can be used to make the activities even more decorative.

A perfect book for crafty football fans! I could use many of the ideas for a football themed party or to embellish a football themed bedroom. 

The activities are pitched at the right level, with minimum complexity, much of each activity could be completed by a child aged 7+ with little help. The activities are broken down into easy steps with diagrams or pictures included for each step. There are pictures of the finished project for each project and they are written in child friendly language. The equipment and 'ingredients' needed for each project are easily sourced and most are available around the home. One thing I would say as a negative was that there was not an 'ingredient' list at start of each project.

Well done to Usborne - another great book. Fantastic project ideas and the book also includes 200 stickers to embellish completed projects.

Thank you to the publishers, Usborne, for sending me the book to review.
