Storytime Crafts, Games and Gifts from Recycled and Inexpensive Items

With nearly half a century of experience with children’s crafts, and a lifetime commitment to pinching pennies, author Mary Beth Magee has adapted many craft projects to use recycled supplies.

If your children’s program feels the sting of a tightening budget, you need this book. More than two dozen projects and games offer opportunities to save money and help save the world at the same time.

These projects can tie into lesson plans and reading programs, to maximize the benefit.
