Sydney provides you with budget-friendly, easy-to-follow ideas to play and create in this handbook, inspired by her family's love of the simple things.

'Sydney's crafts have a low-fi charm that make them accessible to all parents yet completely enchanting for all children.'
'These crafts are so much more than the sum of their parts. Of course, they're fabulous examples of resourcefulness, creativity, and sustainable choices but, beyond that, they teach kids - and adults - to look at "stuff" differently. Where some would just see trash, these crafts teach them to envision the treasure they could become.'You'll never look at a cardboard box the same way again! From princess crowns to puppet theatres, tambourines to washing machines - and yes, even the kitchen sink - there's nothing Sydney can't make from a humble box. A book crammed with creativity and clever ideas, it's proof you need very little to fire up your imagination. Best of all, every one of these 'toys' can be recycled too.
