Each book in this delightful, child-friendly series focuses on a different period in history, from Ancient Egypt right up to World War II. Children will love learning about each era, and then following the simple instructions to make useful or interesting objects from that time. Age-appropriate and accessible, the books are jam-packed with great ideas and perfect for use at home or in the classroom. In Craft Box: World War II, you can embrace the spirit of make-do-and-mend and learn how to make a gas mask, a warden's helmet, a doodlebug, an Anderson shelter, a wireless set, a Spitfire aeroplane, pilots' goggles, a draught-stopper, decoy sneakers, an evacuee's suitase, war medals and a Victory Day souvenir! Fascinating facts on every spread give background information about what life was like during World War II, from what people ate to what they wore, and how they coped with life in wartime. A Further Information spread suggests age-appropriate websites and books, so children can go away and learn more about World War II. A glossary explains any tricky words, and will help to further increase children's knowledge and understanding of the era.
