Makerspace Play – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Imaginative play is double the fun when you make your own toys, structures, and costumes. These books are packed full of great ideas to pick and choose from. Readers are encouraged to think analytically about the requirements of their chosen play space, and to get creative on their own terms. Every step of the process—imagine, brainstorm, collect materials, make, and evaluate—is adorned with photos of inspiring but attainable completed projects. Many examples take advantage of recycled materials, adapted or decorated using a variety of techniques, including painting, printing, weaving, and sculpture. Costumes and consumables are perennial crafting favorites, and these books include plenty of homemade hats and fake food. VERDICT This series gives kid readers ideas and tools to stock their own custom play spaces and keep adding new homemade enhancements.
