The 1980s Bumper Activity Book by Mel Elliott

1980s Bumper Activity Book: 52 Grown Up Projects That Look Back to the Future
The 1980s Bumper Activity Book is a brilliantly unique art and craft book for all those '80s-obsessed people in the world.And last time we checked there were absolutely millions of them! Stuffed to the gills with hugely quirky and fun things to do, the 1980s Bumper Activity Book contains easy peasy instructions to creating and making your own favourite art and design projects. Packed within its glorious technicolour pages are 52 awesome things to create, including: paper dolls of iconic 1980s celebrities; WHAM! glove puppets; funky ties and T-shirts; a 'Pong' duvet cover; 3D glasses ...and even how to bake your very own 'Pac Man' cake! So, don't be a dipstick, step back in time to the decade no one wants to forget with the best 1980s Bumper Activity Book in the world ...EVER! Word count: 15,000

A great gift idea for anyone who was a teenager growing up in the 1980's. Just flicking through the book was like a trip down memory lane, with pictures of Dusty Bin, PAC-Man, Super Mario Brothers, and Magnum PI.

There are 52 different activities to try included in this book which use many different media - cross stitch, paper dolls, Lego, colouring pictures and t shirt transfers.

There are some great ideas in this book and although it is based on the 1980s, and may not be something that will match current  trends,the techniques can be adapted to modern day trends. A great idea for a fun stocking filler this Christmas but not sure how many people will actually make the items included.

I received this book through the Amazon Vine Programme.
