Witch Craft Book

We were recently asked to review a new book “Witch Craft: Wicked Accessories, Creepy-Cute Toys, Magical Treats, and More” Compiled by Margaret McGuire and Alicia Kachmar.

The book is great for Halloween and has lots of projects in it, all have step by step instructions, the tools and materials that are needed. The projects are a vast range from, recipes, toys, accessories for outfits, bones, and house decorations. There are loads of things in the book to do.

I loved the book, personally I thought it was a great idea book for Halloween, it was really easy to understand and the instructions inside are clear and precise. There was a great page at the beginning that had “Witchy Stitches” in. This was a page abbreviating the sewing, crocheting and knitting terms so you knew what they meant throughout the book. Which I found very useful.

We made a few things in the book, I think as Baba gets older we will probably make more, the poison apples and the fuzzy bats are sure to be made in the future. This year we kept to the food, for his party and Halloween we made, Halloween cupcakes, freaky finger food and peanut butter and jelly skull sandwiches, missing out the peanut butter due to nut allergies! All of them went down a storm, although the firm favourite was the Chocolate Marshmallow Skulls.

These were very easy to make and went down a storm with the children and they thought they were fantastic.

The only thing I would say is that I feel a girl may have more fun out of this book. My niece loved it, and there are projects in there for earings, hair pieces, tutus, and shoes things that my nephew at five was not interested in. But he was interested in the food things so this does weigh it up. I think if you have a boy and a girl this is the perfect book. If you only have boys like we do, there are some things in there that you just would not make. That is the only thing we would say to bear in mind if you only have boys. Otherwise a great book.

I would recommend this book and would buy it I think the price of £9.99 is a good price it is a hardback book and has 96 pages including 27 projects to do. That is a lot for your money I feel!
