Out of print. Aimed at 4-8 year old girls, this colorful little book offers simple projects to make surprising miniatures using household items. I picked this up at a yard sale – it’s certain to be available from used book dealers as well. Some of my favorite projects include a realistic-looking sandwich made from expanding sponges, rubber bands, and plastic bags, served with french fries cut from toothpicks, a dollop of ketchup (glue with red paint) and a glass of milk (a mix of glue and white paint in a clear makeup tube cap). All of these projects look easy to do, and they produce great results. I’m impressed enough that I’ll probably be trying some of these myself!
