For today only, December 15, 2011, and while supplies last,
get 50% off select kids' crafts by ALEX Toys.
Twenty different craft-making kits on sale today only.
This was the crafty book that I had as a kid: How to Make Flibbers. Etc. by Robert Lopshire.
I gave my copy of the book to my friend's 8 year old boy and 10 year old girl and they both really enjoy making all the projects inside. Learn how to make a flibber online. Guaranteed great fun for kids.
The directions are incomplete though. Once the newspaper is in a roll (see the picture at their website), carefully use scissors to cut halfway down the tube, creating four "fingers" that are still attached at the bottom. Then, grab all 4 fingers of the innermost layer and gently pull this layer out while holding the very bottom of the roll with your other hand. As the center layer slides out, it will pull all the other layers out at the same time to eventually form this triumphant baton (maybe not as tall as the book jacket). The fingers will naturally splay-out from the center. Give it a try!
