Mini Makers - School Library Journal

Everything is mini in this series, from the snacks and crafts to the origami and games. Titles open with a table of contents and introduction before delving into the projects (around 11 in each), a list of required materials, and a thorough rundown of crafting tips—including checking with an adult and reading through instructions before beginning. From Mini Bowling to Mini Pretzel Bun Hoagies, the instructions for each activity are straightforward and have labeled photos to go with each step. While some of the activities would require an adult for younger crafters, the activities are sure to be enjoyable whether done solo or with a group. One of the titles in the series focuses on a variety of mini holiday crafts (other than Christmas), such as making a mini ofrenda for Día de los Muertos. The back matter includes a read more section, internet sites, and an author bio. VERDICT A cute series of miniature activities; fun for a wide age range.

Mini Makers - School Library Journal

Making and crafting miniature items using new or upcycled materials is what this series brings. Each title opens with a table of contents that mostly lists where to find each activity. The back matter includes where to find more information, followed by an “About the Author” section. Key words are highlighted in bold and in differ- ent colors to emphasize points in the text. Each title starts with what basic supplies will be needed, along with crafting safety tips. Every mini-craft then lists the supplies needed for the specific activity and provides step-by-step instructions with correspond- ing photos for each step. While some crafts are a little inaccessible, like making a mini fan using a small fan motor with blades combined with common household items, some are more convenient, like making a mini terrarium. VERDICT Adaptable crafts and activities for a wide variety of ages, for home or the classroom.
