Readers Circle with Chelsea: Feeling Artsy Crafty! #CraftTime #Arts

This week we would like to share some different craft activity books that we have come across lately. We try to post about a few different books every week. We like to share about Arts and Crafts books and many different children’s books. Star Wars: Build a Scene –  Build Papercraft Scenes from a Galaxy Far, Far Away by Benjamin Harper and Claudio Dias

image005(2)Star Wars: Build a Scene includes everything you need to make iconic papercraft scenes from the Star Wars universe. The kit provides ten sheets of punch-out pieces and step-by-step instructions for creating three detailed 5″ x 8″ x 4″ paper dioramas, including one with LED lights.

Re-create the drama of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader’s duel on Mustafar from Revenge of the Sith; the nail-biting trench battle on the Death Star from A New Hope; and the Kylo Ren and Rey lightsaber fight in the snowy forest of the Starkiller Base from The Force Awakens. The accompanying book includes illustrated assembly instructions for the models, along with three essays on each classic scene and how they were designed and filmed.  Each model takes roughly 2–4 hours to build.

Chelsea and I really thought that this activity was a lot of fun. We even had my hubby helping a little bit which made it even more enjoyable for us. We loved that he was able to help us make these different scenes. Chelsea actually has been enjoying these types of movies and shows lately. We have been watching a lot of Star Trek and some of the Star Wars films. These types of sets are great for my family to have some family time and activities together. We truly enjoy any different type of craft activity.

Stick Sketch School: An Animal Artventure – Mastering the Art of Stick Figure Critters by Billy Attinger and Rachel Kochackis

image008Stick figures are hotter than ever. The biggest web comics are produced in stick figure format, and they are hugely popular in social media. But the best part about stick figures is that anyone can draw them! Billy Attinger showed how to draw stylized stick figures in his popular Stick Sketch School, and now he’s back showing the world his stick figure animals. Take an “artventure” around the world: learn to draw stick animals in the jungle, the Arctic, the rainforest, the Outback, underwater, and more! You’ll even learn how to draw extinct animals and fantasy animals in stick form. Each spread features a grid to show the reader how to draw the lines, how to add movement, expression, and more. Ideal for the visual learner and accompanied by tips and tricks from stick artist Billy Attinger, the book shows how to make your stick animals personal, recognizable, and unique!

I love being able to learn how to draw. This book has a lot of easy to follow instructions on creating different animals. Chelsea has even been trying to draw the different animals she sees in the pictures.
