This magazine is very similiar to Art Attack. The main difference is that the projects have a disney theme. I find that it has something for all age groups, some of the projects would even go much younger than 4. Of course there are also some parts in each magazine that will be too hard for my son (age 5), mainly the how to draw cartoon section.
Each magazine includes the material for one craft project. The last one I bought had plasticine clay, straws for legs and feelers, google eyes and stickers to make two small bugs. Although the project could have been completed with the small amount of plasticene provided, we did use extra that we had at home anyway. Other magazines have had things like sponge shapes and tubes of paint, or a sparkle sand painting kit.
In addition to the main project you will get 6-8 other projects using materials most people will have about anyway. The basics are glue, paint, paper scissors, newspaper and balloons. Egg cartons, toilet roll tubes and other household items are often used as well. Some of these projects have included: A paper mache piggy bank, toilet roll butterflies, pom poms, egg shell monsters, and jumping paper frogs. There is also a colouring page or two featuring disney charcters and a step by step instructions to draw a disney character.
Advantages: we found the projects generally easy to make and lots of fun. It helps children develop creativity as well as motor skills. Although the projects my 5 year old made didnt look like the ones in the magazine, they were nice and he was quite happy with them.
Disadvantages: Many of these projects make a huge mess. They also always look better in the magazine, but that is to be expected.
