As we prepare to wave goodbye to winter snow and cold (and welcome muddy, messy spring with open arms), a new issue of Alphabet Glue has arrived! Inside you will find over thirty pages of book-inspired crafts, kid science, fun activities, and booklists to use as a guide to help you fill your library bags with great reads all season long.
Print quirky bookplates and tuck them inside favorite reads to share with friends, freeze up a tray of colorful ice cubes and test out the relationship between color and light. Gather up handfuls of smooth stones and turn them into imaginative tools for use by the aspiring authors at your house.
Gather up boxes from your closets and cupboards and transform them into basic notebooks or even pinhole viewboxes that teach the basics of camera operation (or allow you to look at an eclipse of the sun). Make miniature file cabinets out of paper and use them to file away important facts and figures about the most compelling of interests. And of course, read up on everything from groundhogs to geology, photography to hibernation.
Volume Eleven of Alphabet Glue is about simple projects with endless possibilities for expansion and exploration. Plenty of good seat-of-your-pants variety fun that you could decide to throw together on a whim, using only materials readily available around your house and yard on a quiet Saturday afternoon.
The best kind of fun there is.
