Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids: A Hands-On Guide to Creative Lettering Review + Giveaway

When I was young I had a lot of energy and not many places to direct it. Each year I write cards and notes, and each year I strive to make my handwriting better. I am always looking for books and step-by-step instructions to extend those skills. When I recently I received a copy of Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids: A Hands-On Guide to Creative Lettering by Virginia Lucas Hart for review I was excited to perfect my abilities for future cards.

Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids: A Hands-On Guide to Creative Lettering by Virginia Lucas Hart features over step-by-step instructions about calligraphy and the creation of scripts and writing styles.

Throughout the book is written directions that are simple for kids to understand.

The art of calligraphy is taught in this book and  takes the basic steps and teaches you. Also the book is teaching you to understand the different types of pens. It also provides technical details with illustrations for basic strokes and letter combinations in simple terms kids can follow.

As the saying goes, practice makes perfect and this book is no different, the more practice using these techniques the better you become. I have a habit of pressing down on whatever pen I chose and there is a section on using pressure to make the letters bolder, fine and medium.

The Fun and Friendly Calligraphy for Kids: A Hands-On Guide to Creative Lettering by Virginia Lucas Hart  is a comprehensive and complete guide and this would be a great book to teach kids and help them add to their repertoire of writing skills.

    My mom is a great crafter and taught me a lot of skills. One year she even got me a subscription to a club where I received one craft every month (first subscription box???). My favorite craft both then and now is sewing. My mom sews every day and sells her things in local stores, at craft shows, and donates many wonderful items, too. Unlike her, I sew when I want to make something and almost every project will be completed in one day – lol. I’m so thankful that she took the time to teach me not only this skill, but many others, too.

    My mother wasnt crafty but i remember a cool craft we did at school. It was where we went outside and collected leaves in the fall. All different colored ones and different shaped ones. We used wax paper and crayons and a iron. I dont remember exactly how to do it but i remember i thought it was so cool and colorful.
