Fans of O’Donnell’s TV show may remember her refreshingly un–Martha Stewart “Craft Corner” segments. Crafty U: 100 Easy Projects the Whole Family Can Enjoy All Year Long , her book and Web page for kids, continues in that unfussy, construction-paper-and-glue tradition. The book organizes 100 projects by season and holidays, like tie-dye T-shirts for the summer. Online videos expand on how to make candy-wrapper light switches and sand candles. Meanwhile, you can hear O’Donnell talk crafts in person on Tuesday.
