Keeping the kids entertained can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when the weather is not particularly nice outside.


However, that’s not to say that you and your little one can’t have plenty of fun indoors - protected from the elements - while you make and create your very own masterpieces.


Now more than ever it is important we make the effort to fit good, quality family time into our schedule, something that you can get with  paint, paper and a little imagination, making Ali Coghlan’s new craft book perfect.


Ali’s book, Get Crafty, will help you and your child make simple, creative, fun and inexpensive crafts, and you don’t need to be a dab hand in the arts department to have fun.


Get Crafty will teach you how to make crafts for all occasions, including special days like Christmas and birthdays, and you’ll be amazed by how many wonderful things you can make with recycled items.


With more than 40 crafts to choose from, designed for both younger and older children, not only will you have lots of fun, but you’ll also be encouraging your child’s sense of creativity.


Ali Coghlan is a MummyPages Craft and Party Expert and is the owner of Craftea Parties.


Get Crafty is published by Mercier Press, and is available to buy now.
