I loved browsing through this book with my kids! It spurred them on to so many ideas. It is a bit colder outside now, but once we get some warm days again I want to take an afternoon outside and create some of the projects we found. I know my 10 year old wants to make a fort. We have a small section of woods so sticks shouldn't be hard to come by. I love the idea of making a mini village with sticks, and using little figures to run through it. I remember seeing something like that at a museum once and it was so creative!!

This is a beautiful book, rich in imagination and ideas!!
I received a copy of it in exchange for an honest review.

Get your copy at Barnes and Noble!!


  1. I bet kids could think of even more ideas! They're so creative with the simplest of toys!

  2. I love it! What a great idea! Reduce household waste and the gimmes and encourage creativity - all in one!
