From straightforward coloring-in fun to drawing objects with similar shapes, making mirror-images, and finishing drawings based on visual clues, this book offers many activities using the five colored pencils included. Your host is Crafty Cat, leading readers 4 to 8 through a series of prompted art activities. Here too are a pair of jointed cardboard puppets to build and play with or use for models in other drawing activities, as well as a punch-out triangle and ruler set, a tracing page, a two-page scene for sticker fun, additional art and puzzle activities, cardboard masks, and several stand-up fairytale characters. Created in Italy, this activity book is full of European charm and contains so many accessory pieces that it's practically a toy set. Along with the colored pencil set, it includes several heavy board pages containing die-cut pieces to punch out and play with or use to complete the activities.
