Counter In this high-tech age, there is more than ever a need for "high-touch" alternatives. "Hands-on" activities increase self-esteem, nurture a child's natural talents, and encourage a healthy mode of self-expression. Created for the crafting pleasure of 7-12-year-olds and their parents, the activities here, based on the PBS television program Hands On, provide kids and their families with imaginative, fun projects that banish boredom while reinforcing concepts learned at school. All are presented in a child-friendly format featuring colorful, full-size patterns and artwork created by children themselves. And best of all in this busy world, each of the holiday decorations, homemade gifts, ornaments, windsocks, and other projects can be completed in just 20 minutes using simple, everyday items. Organized by seasons, but with a special chapter devoted to crafting "At the Zoo," this trove of inspiration is sure to stimulate hours of creativity winter, spring, summer, and fall.
