And, now for what we're reading:

Portland_kid_crafts_365_things_to_make_and_do

This book is chock-full of, well... things to make and do!  Each double page features easy-to-follow instructions (with illustrations!), plus ideas for things made in a similar fashion.  For example, you can follow the instructions for drawing a basic castle.  But, then follow the idea plans for a princess castle, knight's castle or a spooky castle.  You can also make paper animals, like these!
