Because one wasn't enough? More crafts that are centered around gluing crap to other crap and creepy mannequin/doll heads. Just when you think it can't get worse, it does.

My whole family loved this and found projects they wanted to do (boy, 11 & girl 8 & Mama 42). We called it the "Big-bottomed book for crafts." We'll definitely be checking this out again.

It was an okay craft book, Ive seen better.
there were some ideas in here that were just tacky. But the pictures were good and it brought out my creative side.

Equally as entertaining as the first "Big Ass Book of Crafts", this book has a whole new assortment of projects ranging from useful to random and quirky.

Most of the projects require paints and tools that would need at the very least to be supervised for kids. There are some supplies that are really frequently used if you want to do most of the projects: needle-nosed pliers, drill, E-6000, aluminum flashing, cereal boxes, Minwax Polycrylic Protective finish, Elmer's glue. There are projects for all skill levels presented.

"While I know that not every project in this book will fit everyone's style, I can assure you that if you take a look at each project, you'll find a technique or process that will enhance your already wonderful creative abilities."
