Māori art for kids by Julia Noana [Anne, Helensville Library]

This title has rocketed itself up my personal must-buy list. If you have crafty kids – or adults – and need some inspiration, then check it out. 

Fifteen traditional pieces of Māori art are profiled. Each entry includes a history of the piece, a modern artist’s re-imagining, and an art or craft activity based on the piece. 

Get ready for Matariki with the manu tukutuku (kite) activity. Get recycling with a kowhaiwhai container. Beach comb for supplies to make a koru. Be inspired. 
Utterly brilliant.
