Recyclo-gami: 40 Crafts to Make Your Friends GREEN with Envy!

Laurie Goldrich Wolf, photos. by Bruce Wolf, Running Press Teens, $14.95 paper (112p) ISBN 978-0-7624-4052-8
Wolf's fun, resourceful projects offer straightforward ways to reuse common materials to make accessories, jewelry, household decorations, games, and gifts. Leftover tissue or wrapping paper can be used to create decoupage plates; old crayons are melted and baked into molds to make multicolored crayons; and unused CDs and DVDs are transformed into funky, freeform bowls when melted in the oven. While some projects are of dubious usefulness (a tote made from playing cards, for one), the ease of most of the activities should inspire readers to see the recycling bin as a potential treasure trove. Ages 8–up. (Mar.)
