Paper and Tape Crafts


Paper and Tape Crafts is a friendly, accessible tutorial and craft guide aimed at middle grade readers (and their facilitators/teachers/adults). Released 7th March 2023 by Callisto, it's 130 pages and is available in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately. For Kindle Unlimited subscribers this book is currently included in the KU subscription library to borrow and read for free.

Resource people, childminders, parents, and educators are always on the lookout for activity books which are fun and engaging for the small people in their lives. This is a well written and fun book of 28 crafts activities aimed at middle school(ish) kids. Many of them would be usable in a classroom or library setting. I especially loved the washi tape map pins - simple but very useful.

Each tutorial includes a picture of the finished project, a bullet list of supplies needed, instructions for crafting, and many (many!) process photos. Photography is clear and in color. Instructions are written in understandable easy to follow language. 

Four stars. This would be great for public or school library acquisition, home use, activity/scouting groups, maker's spaces and studios, and similar.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
