Crafts for Kids (and Those Who Are Kids at Heart)

close-up of bookplateRemember those kooky drawings in your favorite books by Roald Dahl? They were completed by talented illustrator Quentin Blake. His official Web site offers up a bunch of fun, download-print-and-trim projects for visitors.

What's most worthy of your attention? For me, it's Blake's whimsical bookplates that take the cake. Vividly illustrated, these do-it-yourself ex libris labels are just waiting to grace the inside front cover of your ragged old copies of the Velveteen Rabbit and Where the Wild Things Are.

Note: You need to have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer in order to open the files for some of the downloads.
