The perfect book for budding conservationists and eco warriors! The book is packed full of step-by-step projects for crafty kids eager to reuse, recycle, and do their bit for the environment. With a mixture of simple and challenging projects, readers can learn how to create new objects from scrap materials, make their homes more eco-friendly, and turn even the smallest outdoor space into a wildlife haven. Activities are broken down into easy steps and technical information comes alive in bite-size facts. The reader will also learn about the science behind each project and the wider importance of caring for the environment.
