This compilation is a must-have for every library, providing a multitude of methods for developing easy, interesting activities for children. Projects across cultures, recipes for healthy snacks, and intriguing science experiments are among the hundreds of ideas connecting learning and creativity for students of all ages.

Here's a book to help students create cross-disciplinary projects by using materials they make themselves. From clays and dough, to compounds and crystals, to healthy treats and snacks, children can access the formulas and recipes to make them all! This updated resource combines everything from the former two volumes into one comprehensive edition and features even more recipes, additional relevant content, and expanded connections between activities and curriculum.

Every activity provides you with easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions. Each tried-and-true, safe concoction uses easily obtainable ingredients and provides suggestions for determining why and when each formula can be used. The book contains recommendations for linking projects to curriculum to help make each activity relevant and educational. Organized into 33 chapters, projects include making musical instruments, growing and using plants, conducting science experiments, and preparing food for ourselves and other creatures.
