2012 Award
Origami Studio Book & DVD
(Michael G. LaFosse, Tuttle Publishing $16.99 Score:)

Tuttle has been the publisher of the best Origami books for years. Now they have taken it to the next level by packaging it along with a DVD that can be stopped and started as you work step by step to follow and learn all the folds. In no time you and your child will be able to make fish, flapping birds, butterflies,  boxes--among so many other shapes. Use these to decorate the house for the holidays. Use them for a fun way to refine visual and fine motor skills along with patience all with fun payoffs. The kit comes with 70 sheets of colorful origami paper. This is so much better than a book and paper alone.  It's a book, a DVD, and a craft kit all in one. The DVD holds your hand and makes this ancient art form easier than ever!

2006 Award
Rainy Day Art
(Jumby Bay, Jumby Bay $19.95 Score:) It’s like having an art teacher come to your house! These are great projects for a rainy day or play date or for just plain doing instead of simply sitting there and watching. Cheri Lynn shows kids how to do 30 projects. Some are made with tissue paper and modge podge glue, some with model magic and scissors and foam board, others with something as simple as weaving paper and turning it into a mask! Be forewarned, Lynn uses a hot glue gun for some of her work where staples would do—especially with young kids. Our favorite was the Funky Line drawings done with pens and paper. You can print out directions and most projects will work well with 5 & up. For older kids, see her World Art. 10 & up. (800) 476-1991.
